Santa Severa’s Castle (Rome).
In the historic setting of the Santa Severa’s Castle (Rome) the third edition of IOVINO was held on May 6/7th and presented to the public and professionals an impressive number of wines (more than 500 labels from about 80 producers) from Marche and Campania.
Two regions that increasingly take a prominent place in the Italian wine scene. Wines such as Pecorino, Passerina, Verdicchio, Rosso Piceno and Lacrima di Morro d’Alba for the Marche or as Falanghina, Greco di Tufo, Fiano and Aglianico for Campania, are in fact now well known and appreciated by the general public of consumers.
iBESTmag was ther of course also if, as always in these cases, the great quantity of wines available has forced us to limit the tastings, but the few that we have done “to sample” have confirmed the excellent quality of the products presented. Given the climatic period, we particularly appreciated some Rosè, both of more ancient tradition and of new production. By way of example, we will mention the MA TA Villa Matilde, the Agape Di Sante and the Pivuàn Pantaleo.
An important initiative of great social sensitivity by the “Castrum Morisci” Cellars which produced their labels also in Braille language should be noted.
In addition to tastings, two seminars were held during the event: one about Pecorino 2014 and the other about Greco 2012.
To fully evaluate the scope of the event we recommend a visit to the organization’s WEBSITE with the complete list of producers.
