New DOCG for Monferrato: the EU acknowledges Nizza DOCG
After a long journey undertaken by the Association of Nizza Producers and the Consortium Barbera d’Asti and Wines of Monferrato, the EU has officially acknowledged Nizza DOCG. This long awaited achievement reflects the articulated work of the large group of winemakers towards gaining the recognition of the uniqueness of their vineyards.
We at il Botolo are pleased to produce such a special and unique wine, a wine that conveys, through its color, scents and flavors, the very best nature has given us.
You can find our Nizza 2015 in Luca Maroni’s Best Italian Wines 2019, where it is described as “a wine with a spectacular concentration” receiving a whopping 94 points!
This year Nizza docg celebrates its 4th birthday. The year 2020 has been a challenge for us all, but this has not put a damper on our desire to celebrate our territory’s young but oh so precious wine!
On June 25 and 26, the Consorzio Barbera D’asti e i Vini Del Monferrato in collaboration with Collisioni il Festival Agrirock , organized a music and wine event held in the charming courtyard of the Barolo Castle.
