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!
Over 100 local professionals from Stockholm and Uppsala took part in yet another successful wine event organized by the E4quality project and promoted by the Consorzio Barbera d’Asti e Vini del Monferrato.
This is the conclusion reached by 150 wine tasters gathered by Coldiretti last December at the San Secondo Cultural Center for the annual preview dedicated to “Barbera d’Asti docg”, now in its 18th edition.
