Masottina’s Montesco got silver !
Masottina’s Montesco 2015 received a silver medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2021
The story of Masottina is written in the Prosecco hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, in 2019 listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, established as one of the 56 most beautiful places in Italy and one of the 1121 most spectacular places in the world.
This acknowledgement was achieved after carefully examining the area’s history, economy, sociology and particularly local viticulture through the geomorphology and evolutionary dynamics of its use of the soil. A fundamental contribution was made by aesthetics and literature, but above all the history of art, which thanks to Cima di Conegliano has made it possible to discover the historic traces of the places depicted in his works of art.
The Prosecco hills of Conegliano Valdobbiadene include 15 municipalities. The hill area starts in the north west with Valdobbiadene and ends in the south east with Conegliano, and is acknowledged as ‘unique’ by UNESCO for three main characteristics: the geomorphological aspect, use of embankments and the mosaic-like landscape.
