The native Italian vines protagonists of Buono… non lo conoscevo 2020 ed. held in Rome by Go Wine.
After many long months, and despite the difficulties due to the current situation linked to the CoVid pandemic, noteworthy events in the sector of good drinking are back in Rome.
As usual, Go Wine stands out for the interest aroused by its initiatives, in which it always offers wine lovers of excellent quality and often with new “surprises”. In fact, it happens both to find valid producers already met, and to discover each time some “first fruits” (at least as regards their presence at similar events) that reminds us how varied and high-level the Italian wine scene is.
Even this edition dedicated to indigenous vines was no exception, and we are delighted to be able to present to our readers some very noteworthy wineries that had never appeared on these “pages”.
Of course, participating in this historical moment (both as an organization and producers, as well as communicators or enthusiasts) in a tasting where there are hundreds of labels is not easy at all. Social distancing and other safety measures (first of all fec masks) do not at all facilitate the natural and spontaneous approach to wine tasting. But, with a bit of patience and a bit more forethought, in the end somehow the thing went through.
For our part, we made an abundant number of tastings (over 25), but the “sacrifice” was certainly worth it and, as always, we report a selection of wines tested and our (very personal) evaluation, albeit brief, wants to be a simple suggestion for fans. Labels that are certainly worth tasting and from which, we are sure, you will certainly not be disappointed.

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.
We recommend that you always drink alcohol in moderation and above all, do not drive after drinking.
