In the most recent issue of Gambero Rosso magazine, Bastianich Vespa Bianco was honored to have been named one of the top “50 Bianchi d’Italia”. The wines chosen were not vintage-specific. This was an overall ranking of the best white wines in Italy over the past 23 years.
Bastianich Vespa Bianco ranked number 32 overall, among some of the greatest and most famous whites in all of Italy. Our placement in the Top 50 is especially noteworthy considering that many of the other wines mentioned in the article have a much longer history than we do. We’ve accomplished so much in so little time!
A closer look at the list reveals some interesting facts:
Friuli Venezia Giulia had the most wines in the Top 50 with a total of 17.
…of 17 Friulian Wines Bastianich Vespa Bianco Ranks #10
…of 3 wines from Colli Orientali del Friuli Bastianich Vespa Bianco Ranks # 2 (behind only Terre Alte)
…of 7 Friulian Blends Bastianich Vespa Bianco Ranks # 4 (behind Terre Alte, Vintage Tunina and Breg)
I’m proud that our most important wine has garnered even more recognition… I honestly think it deserves it…
VIVA LA VESPA!
