Excellence Rome – VIII Edition 2019

iBESTmag - Excellence Rome VIII Edition 2019 - La Nuvola Convention Center


Top food and wine, for the VIII Edition of Excellence – Food Innovation at the Rome Convention Center – La Nuvola. 


A not to miss event, has been Excellence, which proposed a remarkable series of events, coocking shows, talks and tastings at the highest levels for three days (Nov. 9th to 11th), to a very numerous public.





We went there on the final day (Monday), when fortunately for us, the “great wave” of visitors had already passed and we were able to calmly taste numerous wines and also various EVO oils, cheeses and scold cuts productions. Just a random selection, of course, but enough to provide our readers with some interesting suggestions for their next choices.

So, let’s start by indicating the Salumi Grufà, from Monte San Biagio (LT). Really high quality (and organoleptic) products.

Also noteworthy were the EX UA extra virgin olive oil by Agricola Giuliani – Castelnuovo della Daunia (FG), as well as that of Il Bagolaro – Nerola (Ri).

The many varieties of chocolate offered by Grezzo Raw Chocolate – Pasticceria Crudista  (with shops in Rome, Milan and Turin) proved to be excellent.

Carring on, about cheeses, we can suggest the tasty products of Az. Agricola D’Ascenzo di Rieti, as well as those distributed by Essentia di Trani (BA), which we will also review in the wine sector.

We also remember two companies already well known by our readers, such as Riso Buono, included in our Special about  Top 5 Italian Rices and Il Poggio, whose food and wine production (Organic Wines, Cinta’s Cured Meats, EVO oil, Ready Sauces, Preserves and Aglione of Val di Chiana) we talk extensively about in the Treasures of Tuscany Special.

Note: The number of tastings from the various producers is exclusively linked to the case and the variations of the moment. For this reason in some cases we taste different wines from a producer and maybe, only one from others. We cannot taste them all, of course, and therefore also the choice of which producers to test is due exclusively to chance or to our desire to evaluate specific vines or terroirs.
