The international jury from the Mundus Vini International Wine Award awarded in total:
43x Grand Gold, 1685 x Gold and 1294 x a silver medal to the best wines of the MUNDUS VINI Spring Tasting.
Italy leads the top 5 winemaking nations, winning a total of 5 Grand Gold, 364 Gold and 364 Silver medals.
2 of these gold medals and 2 of these silver medals are for Masottina:
Gold for Masottina’s Montesco Ai Palazzi Colli di Conegliano Rosso DOCG
Gold for Masottina’s 96 Extra Dry Prosecco DOC Treviso
The crowning glory of the Ai Palazzi line of reds is Montesco.
The story of Montesco began with the 1996 harvest, but is rooted farther back in time, with studies performed to identify clones, rootstock and blend percentages. Montesco comes from a single clone for all the varieties and from a single rootstock. Nowadays the perfect blend is achieved directly in the vineyard in which are planted:
- 43% Cabernet Sauvignon
- 30% Merlot
- 17% French Cabernet Franc
- 10% Marzemino
Therefore, every year the actual percentage of the varieties that make up Montesco is determined by nature. Cabernet and Merlot are vinified together, whereas Marzemino is lightly dried for a few weeks to exalt its softness and express its typical features to the utmost.
This well-structured, full-bodied red wine blends perfectly the softness of Merlot, the strong personality of Cabernet Franc, the unmistakable elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon and the vivacity of Marzemino.
Collezione 96 originates from the outstanding award, 96 points, that Prosecco DOC Brut achieved at the wine competition held by Decanter Magazine in 2017. Today, the same style, based on the tireless search of harmony, is reproduced for the whole range of products, signed by Adriano Dal Bianco.
Silver for Masottina’s Calmaggiore Brut Prosecco DOC Treviso
Silver for Masottina’s Collezione 96 Prosecco DOC Treviso Brut
Prosecco wine with unmistakable style, featuring outstanding elegance, versatility and finesse. Subtle on the palate, enveloping and fresh, it is vinified to the company’s best sparkling wine tradition that uses gravity in order to interfere as little as possible with the raw materials so that they represent and preserve the value of the land.
A delicate wine, distinguished by a fine, lingering perlage. Golden Delicious apples, pink grapefruit and limes are clearly perceived on the nose; to these are added more delicate hints of pears and plums, together with wisteria flowers. Soft and silky, in the mouth it develops the pleasant freshness of fruit straight off the tree.
