Vinitaly Premiere: Operawine “Finest Italian Wines: 100 Great Producers” previews the most important International Wine and Spirits Exhibition. This by-now well-established event brings together international buyers, experts and journalists in Palazzo Gran Guardia in Verona to taste Wine Spectator’s selection of the best Italian wines. Operawine is the only event in which the US magazine is involved outside the United States and the eighth edition is one of the most eagerly awaited events in the Vinitaly calendar this year. A sequence of events setting off from the Exhibition Centre that, together with Vinitaly and the City, embraces the entire city and the world focusing on the nectar of the gods: from critics to international operators and wine lovers. The 2019 grand tasting brings together 103 labels representing all regions of Italy with 70 red wines, 15 whites and 10 sparkling and dessert wines. As a clear demonstration of the lively Italian wine world, 22 new companies have been included this year. Montalcino, the homeland of Brunello, takes top place as the most represented wine-making area. Vinitaly’s objective is to promote the commitment of wine-makers already working to improve their production by supporting them on markets. Recognition by Wine Spectator and involvement in Operawine are the result of the splendid work on the part of producers and Veronafiere, in keeping with its efforts to promote its exhibitors going back 120 years. Palazzo Gran Guardia was the cradle for the first event dedicated to wine which in turn gave rise to Vinitaly: it was here in 1967 that the “Italian Wine Days” were held - the forerunner of today’s trade fair. Maurizio Danese President of Veronafiere

It is a pleasure to welcome you to the eighth edition of Finest Italian Wines: 100 Great Producers, a wine tasting presented by Wine Spectator and Vinitaly. Each of the wineries will pour one great vintage and the owners and winemakers will be on hand to meet you and discuss their wines. In order to showcase the quality and diversity of Italy’s great wines, Wine Spectator has invited Italy’s finest wine producers to participate in this event. The selection has been made based on producers’ track records of quality and their historical importance in their regions. Of course, no group of only 100 producers can be comprehensive, or exhaust the bounty of Italian wines. But we hope you’ll taste many excellent wines, and discover what makes Italian wines so special, and so unique. Wine Spectator, the world’s leading authority on wine is pleased to partner with Vinitaly, the largest wine fair in the world. We are delighted that you can join us for this extraordinary evening of Italian wine. Very truly yours, Marvin R. Shanken Editor and Publisher, Wine Spectator

Wine Spectator is pleased to partner with Vinitaly in presenting OperaWine 2019. Debuting in 2012, the event gathers a selection of Italy’s great wine producers to showcase the breadth and quality of Italian wine. The editors of Wine Spectator are solely responsible for selecting the wineries that participate in OperaWine, and approve all the wines selected for presentation. Because the country’s diversity, heritage and achievements in wine cannot be summed up in such a small group of producers, each year the list changes, with new participants replacing some of the previous attendees. This is our way of keeping the event fresh and of reflecting the vitality of the Italian wine industry. This year, 15 producers are first-time participants: Paternoster from Basilicata; Cleto Chiarli e Figli from Emilia-Romagna; Bastianich from Friuli-Venezia Giulia; Bisci from Marche; G.B. Burlotto and Roagna from Piedmont; Feudo Maccari from Sicily; Baricci, Canalicchio di Sopra, Eredi Fuligni, Lisini, Livio Sassetti and San Filippo from Tuscany; and Roberto Anselmi and Le Colture from Veneto. We congratulate these wineries on their achievements. In addition, Montevetrano from Campania; Marco Felluga from Friuli-Venezia Giulia; Benanti from Sicily; Cantina Terlano and J. Hofstätter from Trentino-Alto Adige; Castellare di Castellina and Rocca delle Macìe from Tuscany, participants in previous editions, return for 2019. The selection process is challenging. In 2018, Wine Spectator editors reviewed more than 15,000 wines in independent blind tastings. Of these, more than 2,500 were Italian, and it is from this extensive database that the OperaWine participants were chosen. The selection committee is comprised of three Wine Spectator editors. Executive editor Thomas Matthews joined the publication in 1988 and now oversees print and digital operations worldwide. Senior editor Bruce Sanderson, who joined in 1993, is the publication’s lead taster for the wines of Piedmont and Tuscany. Tasting director Alison Napjus, who joined the publication in 2000, is lead taster for all other Italian wines. Wine Spectator is the world’s leading authority on wine. Anchored by Wine Spectator magazine, a print publication that reaches more than 3 million readers worldwide, the brand also encompasses the Web’s most comprehensive wine site (WineSpectator.com), mobile platforms, and a series of signature events. Parent company M. Shanken Communications also publishes Cigar Aficionado, Whisky Advocate, Market Watch, Shanken News Daily and Shanken’s Impact Newsletter.

It is hard to believe we are already celebrating the eighth consecutive year of collaboration with Wine Spectator for OperaWine — only recently, Bruce, Alison, and Tom were already sharing some ideas about the celebration of the tenth year anniversary (Wine Spectator is a firm believer in advance planning!). Together, we strive to make OperaWine an unforgettable opening to Vinitaly. The 2019 line-up of 103 Italian wineries selected by Wine Spectator continues to showcase in a single afternoon the exceptional quality, diversity, and sophistication of the Italian wine tradition, and we are incredibly grateful to be part of this annual appointment. Every year my creative team and I work together to devise a visual campaign for the event, one that defines OperaWine in an impactful way. This year we drew inspiration from Generative Art, a contemporary trend whereby human-programmed computers and machines generate artistic motifs. This year’s visual theme brings together the interaction and struggle of these generative forces through abstract, polychromatic patterns, a kaleidoscopic tribute to the variety and excellence of Italian wines. One of the main drives in this type of art is the search for harmony between a human-made creation and an autonomous system over which artists have partly relinquished their creative control. I think this drive is very similar to the work of winemakers, women and men who create wines using their knowledge, passion, and experience, while also dealing with unforeseen factors such as climate change, over which control is limited. In fact, we have dedicated a generative art work for the each participating winery, a sort of translation of their brand logo. In addition, we have produced a small Skype video with a handful of producers, a fun and informal interpretation of their iconic wine paired with an opera (yes, some sing as well). We will be posting the video clips on our social media channels as a way to offer another glimpse into the Italian wine world. Wine Spectator’s 103 Finest Italian Wines and their wineries have been organized regionally this year—in this catalog as well as in the loggiato of Palazzo della Gran Guardia where the walk-around tasting takes place. I hope you will enjoy the multicolor, speckled, and artful passeggiata and degustazione. Wishing you a happy journey into 20 Italian wine regions and their gems with OperaWine! Stevie Kim Managing Director, Vinitaly International and OperaWine

La Stoppa is a long-established estate, founded over a century ago near Piacenza in EmiliaRomagna. In 1973, the estate was acquired by the Pantaleoni family, who rationalised the vineyards and renovated the cellars. The naturally low yields, which result from the average age of the vines and the poor soil, together with the intrinsically high quality of the grapes, make it possible to create wines that reflect their origin in the vineyards, rather than in excessive re-working in the cellar.

Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro Cantolibero 2016

90 points Grape 100% Lambrusco Grasparossa

Wine Type Red Sparkling Lambrusco Alcohol 11%

Region Emilia-Romagna

The Pederzana Estate cultivates a clone of Lambrusco Grasparossa of Castelvetro DOC that is to be found nowhere else in the world. Franco Simonini, a passionate vine-grower, started to cooperate with the University of Bologna in a bid to identify the best clones of the noble variety that was prevalent in the area. After much experimentation, he succeded in isolating a clone of Grasparossa which, many years later his nephew Francesco Ghibellini discovered to be unique among the range of clones registered with the Experimental Institution for Viticulture.

The philosophy is simple: we try to obtain healthy grapes, and what we do in the cellar is dictated by the respect of different vintages and what they require to express themselves naturally.

The Cavallotto Estate has been in the family for generations, and in 1928 they were among very the first ones in that area to produce and trade wines exclusively coming from grapes grown in their own vineyards. From 1974, the Cavallotto family has had a continuous regard to oenological, agronomic, and natural techniques, carrying on the traditional way to vinify and age their wines.

The G. B. Burlotto Winery has remained a family-run business where all phases, from growing grapes to production and sales, are now taken care of by the owner, Marina Burlotto, her husband Giuseppe Alessandria, and their sons Cristina and Fabio.

In the heart of the Langhe area, a wine was born: a wine that today goes by the name of Barolo, like the town where it was first produced in the early 1800s. No one at that time could imagine that it was destined to become the King of Wines, the Wine of the Kings. At present, the Abbona family still operates in the Marchesi di Barolo antique cellars: Anna and Ernesto, already the fifth generation, are personally involved in the winery’s business activities along with their children.

In 1968 Granpa Dauphin started bottling his own wine and brought the farm from 3000 square meters to the current 12 hectares. In the following years, all five sons were involved in winery work. The breakthrough happened in 2011: the organic conversion was started, with Grosjean Vins being the first and only winery in Valle d’Aosta to do so at that time. In 2015, production increased. At the beginning of 2018, this wonderful proponent of Valle d’Aosta’s viticultural tradition went into the hands of the third Grosjean generation.
