The 2020 edition of 5StarWines - the Book was renamed the "Agile" edition: due

to the pandemic, the event was transformed and moved online, with the support of

video conferencing and WebApp. For the first time, international judges tasted and

evaluated wines in their own homes, scattered around the world.

This year 5StarWines - the Book was finally able to turn back time and go back to

partial in-person attendance. During 2021, a team of 80 international experts made

up of Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and specialized journalists (selected by

territory expertise), met safely in Verona, shortly after the first reopening of the

borders and in-presence events.

This year encompassed intense days of blind tastings, where professional competence

allowed for the correct and unexceptionable evaluation of the wines featured in these

pages. Three days that came immediately prior to the first two Vinitaly-branded

meeting opportunities for the wine market after fifteen months of closure: OperaWine

and Vinitaly Special Edition Preview.

Vinitaly and Veronafiere are always working hard to ensure the best possible match

between supply and demand. Promotion is based on social interaction and human

relations, embracing digital innovation and using tools that are always up-to-date

such as 5StarWines - the Book: the only guide produced by an international exhibition,

containing the best that the world of oenology has to offer.

Maurizio Danese

President of Veronafiere

Wine is a complex and fascinating product. For its promotion, effective and constantly

updated tools such as 5StarWines - the Book are indispensable. The Vinitaly guide

aims to connect wines, wineries, expert and novice consumers, as well as stimulate

the international market.

Today's consumer is increasingly informed, aware and demanding. In addition to taste,

they are looking for a real experience in wine, in which details such as the design of the

packaging or the label, and aspects such as environmental and social sustainability or

the link with the territory, become an integral part.

For the players in the world of wine it is therefore important to reach people and

make them fall in love with the product; the places where the vines grow, the personal

stories and traditions behind each bottle.

The role of the guide 5StarWines - the Book is to intrigue and bring potential

consumers closer, with its vast selection of wines evaluated by an accredited jury of

oenologists, sommeliers, buyers and journalists, it continues to make the difference

between professionals in the horeca channel; buyers and distributors, fitting in

with Vinitaly's mission to act as a privileged promotional vehicle on the Italian and

international markets.

For the second year running, organising 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls proved to

be a challenge. However, the 2021 edition was undoubtedly different from the "agile"

2020 edition. Just a few days after the government reopened to fairs and congresses,

it was the first event in attendance to inaugurate the June Vinitaly "marathon"

(preceding OperaWine, Vinitaly Special Edition Preview and Vinitaly International

Academy Verona).

Organising an event with the unknown "future re-openings" means training in

flexibility and the adoption of a contingency plan. This was already the case in 2020,

when the contingency plan was implemented. The judges were connected to a digital

platform remotely, ready to receive and taste the batteries of wines assigned to them

under the supervision of the General Chairmen in Verona.

The 2021 edition was able to return to its usual format. The Team ensured that

the judges initially recruited could reach Verona safely, thanks also to the historic

collaboration with ICE - Agency and its local offices. Veronafiere set up a buffer centre

at the Exhibition Centre on the days of the event and implemented all the safety

protocols necessary for conducting the tasting. Divided into two halls, more than

70 judges met for the first time after a year's break "from the scene" of 5StarWines

& Wine Without Walls: a moment of sharing, comparison, and enthusiasm, but also

support for the Italian wine system, finally getting back on track after suffering greatly

from the pandemic crisis.

Although different in format, the two editions were marked by the principle that, by

shuffling the cards and with the right perspective, it is possible to turn a challenge

into an opportunity. Once again, this year, I would like to thank all those who made the

selection possible for their cooperation and motivation.

8


First and foremost, I would like to thank the judges for their involvement before,

during and after the event, and for their continued work in promoting the selected

wines abroad. I would like to thank them all this year for the sense of community they

gave us as we returned to tasting in their presence. Special thanks also go to the six

General Chairmen Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW, Robert Joseph, Bernard Burtschy,

Daniele Cernilli, Monty Waldin, and Gabriele Gorelli MW who, after two days of

tastings with the Panels, dedicated a third day to a careful and rigorous reassessment

of the wines that were candidates for a score of 90 or higher, and proceeded with the

customary awarding of Trophies.

For us as organisers, the event is the "heart" of the Selection. This is the starting

point for many related activities such as drawing up classifications, communication

of results to companies, preparation and delivery of diplomas, publication of selected

bottles and relative tasting notes on the social channels of the Selection, sharing

of results on the wine-searcher search engine, promotional moments during events

organised by Veronafiere in Verona and abroad, implementation of results on the

Vinitaly Plus platform. Not forgetting, of course, the printing of the Guide with

subsequent dispatch to judges and winning companies. The aim of 5StarWines - the

Book is to give visibility to producers and the quality of the winning wines, promoting

them through the tasting notes written by the judges who evaluated them. The Guide

is therefore a storytelling of the wine and the perceptions of the Panel that tasted it,

but above all an acknowledgement of the excellence of the Italian wine system.

Well, all this would not be possible without the support and work of the players that

make up the 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls "family": Gianni Bruno, Exhibition

Manager Wine & Food at Veronafiere and his team, for their support in the organisation

and enthusiasm for the project; ICE - Agency, for their synergic collaboration in the

promotion of quality Italian wine abroad and for their trust in the challenges of the

last two years; Assoenologi - in particular President Riccardo Cotarella and Director

Paolo Brogioni - for their continuous technical, promotional and human support, but

also the head oenologist Andrea Zanni for his coordination with the project team,

dedication in anonymising samples and professional rigour. And then Monty Waldin,

for his editing of the Guide; Mauro Cobelli, Legal Coordinator of the Veronafiere

Selection for his careful and meticulous control of the guidelines, compliance with

objectivity requirements and the security measures implemented. Finally, all the

members of the "extended" Selection Team (including staff, partners, and suppliers)

that I do not have space here to mention individually: this Guide is also yours.

INTRODUCTION

11


Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW

What I like most about wine is its incredible diversity. Us wine people are a pain in

the neck for marketing gurus. Instead of fostering a concentration of producers and

a limited number of great brands, instead of staying loyal to well-defined styles of

wines, we are constantly looking for new grape varieties, remote landscapes, original

winemakers, alternative viticulture...

We know that we are right, and those gurus are wrong, because real wine lovers are

not consumers, they are transformers. We do not consume the wines but transform

them into memories and expectations. When we deal with a country such as this one,

the infinite diversity and the amazing originality of Italy, we are on our favourite turf.

This year's 5StarWines – the Book has gone one step further toward the wonderful

creative entropy that characterises Italy. More and more wines deserve slow reflection

because of their originality; wines with moving aromatic precision, wines that open

the senses and provide a straightforward source of joy...there were just so many

exciting tasting moments.

Our mission is to evaluate, and we do this under strict blind conditions; several

thousand wines, and, in this way, we can give wine lovers our honest reflections on

their intrinsic qualities, according to our viewpoint. I must confess that my deepest

wish is to understand a little bit more of this unique country, to try to read up on the

history and landscape behind the flavours, to immerse myself in Italy's liquid wonders.

Sometimes, our marks cannot tell the whole story about the wine, they deserve to be

complemented by a slow conversation rather than by a succinct tasting note.

I am convinced that most of the wines in our Book have the potential to illustrate some

of the incredible places of Italy, peaking their imaginations and bringing memories to

the forefront. If you are just a consumer, please do not bother with the Book. But, if

you are a wine lover, I hope you will thoroughly enjoy this humble homage to Italian

wine excellency and find some unknown wines that will inevitably become part of

your Italian memory.

Wine - every wine - has a voice. Some whisper and some shout. Some sing familiar

melodies. Others offer tunes that are totally original. Some are beautifully in harmony.

Others are discordant. Our job as wine tasters is to listen, and to try to make sense of

what we hear. And there is nowhere that offers as wide a range of sounds as Italy, with

its bewildering range of microclimates and grapes and production methods. That's

why taking part in 5StarWines - the Book is such a high point in my year. Partly

because of the experience of tasting so many different wines, but also because of the

way in which the team of general chairmen work together; we share our expertise and

opinions, and listen to each other, just as we listen to the wines.

So, what do I remember about the sounds of this year? More harmony: less showy

oaks and alcohol. More individuality: a growing number of fascinatingly individual

indigenous grapes that are being allowed to express themselves. Putting on

5StarWines - the Book this year was not easy, and Stevie Kim and her army of helpers

as well as the judges who were able to travel to Verona - not true for everyone, sadly

- deserve huge congratulations for what they achieved. As do the winemakers in Italy

who had to work through what were often very difficult conditions.

Of course, 2021 has not been an easy season either, with the challenges of the

pandemic being compounded by some very unhelpful weather. I look forward to

joining my fellow General Chairmen next year to lend an attentive ear to the wines

with which we are presented.

For the past forty years, under the influence of a great American wine critic, the wine

world has been in the habit of rating wines, often on a hundred-point scale. Hence,

a wine ends up with a score of 89 points, another with 98 points. Can you imagine

applying the same rating scales to the art world? Michelangelo 99 points, Picasso 97,

Andy Warhol 96.

This very simplifying ranking method has certainly allowed the public to access

the world of wine over the last decades. However, for a long time, most wine critics

refused to rate a wine, just as one does not rate a piece of art. They have been swept

away by the huge simplification which is one of our current civilisation problems. But

can a wine be summed up in a single note? Clearly not.

The written comment is essential to understand a wine. Under the same score of 92

can be hidden totally different wines that do not resemble each other at all. Only a

well-written comment and description allows understanding the style of the wine.

All the competitions in the world give marks and often only marks because it is the

easy solution that allows hiring tasters with poor or well below average skills. What is

unique about 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls is that every single wine is properly

described and analysed by the wine judges, and this changes everything! This means

no more tinkering, no more marks given in haste without the slightest explanation and

no more unqualified tasters.

Let’s take a random comment such as: “a wine with a nice Mediterranean character,

with the floral notes of the Muscat, a suave texture with moderate acidity, some

juiciness and a long and clean finish. This is a modern version of the classic aromatic

styles from the Mediterranean. Delightfully made”. Admittedly, this tasting note looks

a lot better than the 91-point rating, and you get right into the intimacy of Basilicata

IGT Bianco. But it takes a different skill set to write such a tasting note than to award

a 91-point score.

The 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls selection is the one and only, in the world, to

publish its results with very sound and top-level written comments with, in addition, a

few analytical data points. A great achievement!

Daniele Cernilli

Being one of the Chairmen at 5StarWines - the Book again this year was a truly

remarkable experience. We were all back in attendance, complete with all the

precautions due to the present health situation; the work was challenging yet

rewarding for all judges. The six Chairmen worked in great harmony, comparing, and

collaborating to try to select the best wines for every category present.

Listening to the opinions of such expert and competent people was very interesting

even for those who, like me, have been judging wines for many years. There is

always something new to learn and a sprinkling of humility was experienced by all;

determined to get great results. When one is tasting hundreds of wines, one can get

distracted, and mistakes can be made when it comes to judging alone.

The sense of collegiality has been very important, and I must say it has always been

present in our work and this must be clearly underlined.

Monty Waldin

All of us have grown up in a world of known knowns, on a planet that spins yet which

somehow never throws us off into oblivion. Yet as wine judges we have the power to

cast aside wines made by people we may never meet, presented in bottles whose

labels we cannot see, and whose contents have only a short time to impress our

palates before being expectorated into the oblivion of the spittoon ready for the

next wine. And given that the majority of the wines we taste come from Italy, with it's

world-beating array of native wine grapes, we have to be especially vigilant, and more

importantly we must be consistent in how we calibrate our comments and scores.

This is one of the hardest aspects of judging, permitting ourselves as judges the

luxury of the specious exactitude of the 100 points scoring system when we know the

wine in our glass is changing subtly even as we punch our score into the computer

system. In terms of trends the wines on show manifested no great differences to

what is going on globally: more fruit, less oak, greater drinkability. The number and

quality of 'alternative' wines - such as organics, biodynamics, and natural continues to

increase along with consumer demand.

Going forward the 'Greening of Wine' in general will continue due to consumer

demand, and producer enthusiasm and confidence. Italy's clement climate and vinefriendly

topography well suits lighter touch farming which in turn leads to lighter

touch winemaking but longer and more interesting discussions around the tasting

table. From a judge's perspective these wines tend to be easier to taste because of

their refreshing, tangy tone, often with no oak in wines that have natural intensity but

effortless drinkability.

The fact that 5StarWines - the Book gives us the time to cogitate at length around the

table when discussing the wines is welcome and necessary and I think all the judges

would agree, especially as our judges come from across the globe, even if this year

social distancing meant our communications were mainly virtual rather than face to

face, spittoon to spittoon.

16


Back to native trends and varieties. It has been a challenging 18-months, to say the

least, as we all adapt to this version of the world.

Judging at 5StarWines - the Book last year was not the same as we were accustomed

to, for me, carrying out our tastings on Zoom did not have the same human element.

Although everyone was encouraged by the event taking place and the possibility to

contextualise and discuss the wines online, my focus was very much on the glass in

front of me. As we reopened to in-person tasting panels, we acknowledged that our

lives, as well as how we want to live them has changed. 2021 is the year we realized

there was a greater need for human interaction rather than technology: networking is

best done without an internet connection. We all needed to re-calibrate both tasting

and how we interact amongst each other. There is a great impulse, the drive that is our

'human instinct' to foster relationships, feel empathy, share and hug.

Instincts can be compared to native varieties – these wines enticed our judges most

this year. The increasing growth and popularity of native variety wines present in

the last edition was pleasantly supported by their outstanding distinctiveness; their

profiles were faithful to their origin. In a word: identity. It is this identity that created

discussion and a willingness to share. Furthermore, many of these wines were also

assessed for their consumption suitability. The so called 'glou glou' wines: bright,

inclusive and inviting to people, encouraging them to continue glugging. Ultimately,

all roads lead back to our roots, native trends, and of course our native varieties.

JUDGES

The virtue of 5StarWines - the Book lies in the highly qualified,

international panel of judges comprising Masters of Wine, Master

Sommeliers, sommeliers, wine journalists, and oenologists. The

international team of judges was coordinated by an expert panel

of Chairmen: Pedro Ballesteros Torres, Master of Wine from Spain

and Member of the Governing Council of the Institute of Masters

of Wine; Bernard Burtschy, President of the French Wine Press

and columnist for Le Figaro; Robert Joseph, Editor for Meininger’s

Wine Business International; Daniele Cernilli, “Doctor Wine” and cofounder

of Gambero Rosso; Monty Waldin, wine writer (Decanter),

broadcaster, and author of 13 books on organic and biodynamic wine.

Wines were initially tasted by panels of 5 judges and assigned points

up to 100. To receive the 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls recognition,

any wines that were deemed faulty or scored 90 or above during the

round of tasting were retasted by the General Chairmen to provide

an extra level of integrity and objectivity. The panels were comprised

of more than 70 judges with high credentials, including not only

Masters of Wine, but also highly experienced industry and Italian wine

specialists: wine writers, importers, educators, and esteemed wine

sector professionals, giving this guide immense credibility and standing.

The significance of the 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls selection is even

more important after more than a year when the entire industry has been

impacted by Covid-19. This Selection allowed Italian wine to continue

to be in the hearts and minds of wine professionals and highlighted

to the industry at large that Italian wine is very much continuing

with its passionate project to bring their wines into a global market.

The judges were able to share, once again, the excitement of returning

to tasting in the presence of others, to work and taste together, to

network, and above all, to restore the daily routine of their profession.

As Gabriele Gorelli MW has said “it’s always good to taste wine

together, in person, this time around even more. It was a time of reassessment,

a so-to-say revert edition: like Christmas in a way, when

you finally get to see some people that you haven’t seen in a while”.

The international and expert reputation of the judges coupled

with the participation of over 2,000 wines from not only Italy, but

Europe, Australia, Canada and South America, highlights the growing

importance of 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls globally.

VIGNETI DELLE DOLOMITI IGP TEROLDEGO

“GRAN MASETTO” 2015

Powerful oak and ripe, clear red fruit and blackberry aromas greet you

in this 100% Teroldego red from high altitude vines in the Dolomites.

On the palate it is still a little youthful and tannic but is also generously

fruited and the tannins from both fruit and oak provide the necessary

structure. Its acidity is very well handled and adds to its versatility in

terms of food pairing.

A beautiful Veronese Rosso from Merlot, Corvina and Rondinella

SALENTO IGP NEGROAMARO VINO BIOLOGICO

An engaging and generously rich and well structured Negroamaro

from the Salento area of Puglia. The fruit shows gorgeous ripeness

BIANCHELLO DEL METAURO DOC SUPERIORE

VINO BIOLOGICO “LUBÁC” 2018

A Bianchello del Metauro with a clean medicinal nose, with dried

herbs and apricot. It is ripe on the palate but structured and with nice

oxidative notes. This is a complex, drinkable wine and a good example

of the style. Some salinity on the finish is a great touch.

ASOLO PROSECCO DOCG SUPERIORE

SPUMANTE EXTRA DRY MILLESIMATO 2020

Mealy aromas greet you along with delicate lilly flower flavours. The

textural complexity marks it out as a classico Asolo. In the mouth the

floral, acacia element is also lighted dusted with that lovely honey tone,

which leads to a unique mouth watering sensation in the finish. Drink

now and over the next five years.
