august, 31 - 2012 - A 3 Bicchieri award for the Cuvée del Fondatore vendemmia 2011

After the success of the 2010 vintage, the 2011 wins the 3 bicchieri award

One year ago, we were brimming with pride and almost incredulous when we announced to you our first “3 bicchieri” award. Today, after 12 months of hard work, we no longer just feel joy, but a precious and gratifying confirmation which has paid us back for all our hard work and effort. Today we have affirmation that we adopted the right strategy, initially considered by many to be a waste of time and resources, because ours was a philosophy which was too far from the mainstream. We undertook this approach without doubts because it was one based on genuine passion, which has always been our primary motivation, as true as our love for our land, as true as the vines cultivated on the challenging, arduous and spectacular slopes of our hills, features which on their own justify our hard work. The Cuvée del Fondatore Graziano Merotto vendemmia 2011 won the “3 bicchieri” award based on our passion for quality and dedication to creating something unique.
