IWSC Awards for Masottina
(International Wine and Spirit Competition)
The story of Masottina is written in the Prosecco hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, in 2019 listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site and established as one of the 56 most beautiful places in Italy and one of the 1121 most spectacular places in the world.
R.D.O. (Rive di Ogliano) is the epitome of Masottina’s wine production. Adriano and his brothers were pioneers in discovering Ogliano, believing in this unique terroir in the Conegliano Valdobbiadene hills, long before its prestige was acknowledged in 2009 with the introduction of the Rive indication.

Silver and 91 points for the Contradagranda Extra Dry
Contrada Granda is dedicated to the ancient Contrada Granda, the name of the historic centre of Conegliano. The same history and tradition is found in blending the wines that unite the different spirits of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene hills to perfectly harmonise the complexity and aromatic intensity of fruit typical of Ogliano, the floral hints of Solighetto and the pronounced acidity of Rolle.
In 2009, when Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore was elevated to DOCG, a new indication was introduced – ‘Rive’, which identifies on the label the municipality or hamlet where the grapes are grown.
Masottina’s ‘Rive’ wines represent the essence of the territory, they are produced with hand-picked grapes exclusively from a single locality. Ogliano is one of the 43 rive where Terre di Ogliano and the Dal Bianco family cultivate almost 20% of the entire vine planted area.
