abstract and translation by Laura Policante – This year’s 12th international wine contest organized by the wine Academy Mundus Vini has again awarded our winery. It’s not easy to hide our excitement about these news, given that this is one of the world’s most prestigious wine contests.
In August and beginning of September the jury composed of more than 300 experts from 46 different countries met in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse, in Germany, and tasted more than 6000 samples coming from all over the world, awarding a little over 1800 of them with totally 805 gold medals and 1033 silver medals.
Two gold medals went to Albino Armani wines : Sauvignon Campo Napoleone 2011 and Amarone Albino Armani Doc 2007. In addition, our new-born Spumante Metodo Classico “ 823” received the outstanding score of 84/100.
For the Sauvignon Campo Napoleone this is Mundus’ Vini second medal. The technical sheet based on the tastings showed that the jury mostly appreciated this wine’s perfectly balanced minerality, acidity and aromatic notes.
On the other hand, it was most of all harmony and the complexity of notes and sensations that impressed the experts in our Amarone della Valpolicella Doc 2007. This is perfectly reflecting the features we are doing our best to bring out in this powerful wine, capable of strongly expressing its ripe fruityness.
Our new entry, the Spumante Metodo Classico “ 823” was not awarded with a medal this year, but the score of 84/100 is telling us that we are going in the right direction with this very mineral mountain Blanc de Noir.
