During the event “TO Taste 2019”, that was held in the city of Turin from March 24-26, il Botolo was pleased to host some delegates from NAFTA (North America Free Trade Association) at Osteria Rabezzana.
The event was very important to il Botolo because the US is the largest importer of Italian wines, both in terms of quantity and quality.
Guests enjoyed both the wines and the cordial atmosphere. The evening’s lively conversation clearly showed that different wines were preferred amongst those attending the tasting, but all guests were unanimous in their appreciation of the quality of Nizza DOCG, which once again emerged as the winery’s “diamond label”.
What do our wines have in common with the Piedmontese excellence of Slow Food and the "heroic" hills of Prosecco Conegliano-Valdobbiadene, recently nominated UNESCO World Heritage Site?
There was some fear the harvest would be sub-optimal due to poor weather conditions and abundant rainfall. However, the weather leading into harvest was sunny and dry, which led to perfectly ripe grapes and promises to be a very good vintage.
In the heart of Milan Wine Week, the most anticipated event of Milanese autumn, il Botolo debuted at the 10th edition of La Vendemmia of Via Montenapoleone, at one of the most prestigious boutique shops on the street: Vetrerie di Empoli.
