After having had the opportunity to get to know all the members of the association - each along with a wine chosen to represent the company - some of the guest journalists of the online event have set to work to recount the work and philosophy of the Club to their readers.
We take this opportunity to renew our heartfelt thanks to Maurizio Magni and Ivan Tesei, main supporters of the Club and its initiatives. The potential of the white wines (but not only...) of our region undoubtedly represents a heritage that deserves to be valued, and with it the commitment of the many producers who daily dedicate themselves with great passion to the handing down and elevating of a great tradition.

The prestigious competition, the AWC Vienna - International Wine Challenge 2020, saw the participation of a large selection of wines from the Tenute d’Italia catalogue. In fact, eight labels were entered, each of which achieved an excellent evaluation by the jury.
The Tenute d’Italia trophy shelf is therefore enriched with new, important medals, testifying to the valuable continuity shown by our team of oenologists in the search for high quality standards. Below is the table of the results obtained by our wines at the AWC Vienna - International Wine Challenge 2020.
The labels are divided by brand; by clicking on each wine one can access the technical sheet on the official website www.tenuteditalia.com

Tenute d’Italia renews its participation again this year in the Yearbook of the Best Italian Wines (edited by Luca Maroni), a leading publication on the Italian wine scene that has already given significant reviews about our company in past editions.
Below is a summary of the results assigned to the wines selected to represent our company in the 2021 edition of the Yearbook of the Best Italian Wines. The products are distinguished by the brand they belong to: by clicking on the name of the wine you can access its full product details on our site www.tenuteditalia.com
We are pleased to announce the entry of new companies into the Tenute d'Italia network: in recent months the team led by our sales office has focused on the important network expansion project to include some new, important Italian territories - and their great wines - to satisfy our customers' needs even more fully.
Our attention has turned specifically to Tuscany, in particular to the denominations Chianti D.O.C.G., Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. and Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G., involving three companies:
You will already find a short presentation and links to the official websites of the companies on our site in the “Partnerships” section, where you can also discover all the other producers that make up the Tenute D’Italia network.
In the article dedicated to our membership in the White Wines Club of Romagna we mentioned the white wines in our catalogue produced with indigenous (white) vines of our region, namely Albana and Pignoletto. However, the production of white wines in Tenute d’Italia is not limited to these, but also includes other wines produced with so-called international varieties but which are part of the Romagna wine tradition almost as much as the properly indigenous varieties.
We are speaking in particular of Chardonnay, which in "Il Fascinoso" finds a truly territorial declination in combination with Trebbiano, Pinot Grigio, which makes up 100% of the brand new product of the Conte Zardi line "Il Mirabile", and Manzoni Bianco, used for the production of "Cheilante", a wine that due to its special characteristics is gathering more and more public success both in Italy and on the international scene.
Alongside the presentation video of our company and it’s philosophy, here you will be able to find important contributions about the in-depth studies dealt with in our blog, mini-documentaries that closely illustrate our work and its central characters, ending with real video guides for the discovery of wines in our catalogue.
The project, initiated in 2018 and which brings together some of the most significant producers in our area, has set itself the important objective of promoting the visibility and reputation of Romagna white wines, fostering an increasingly widespread knowledge among the general public.
In spite of the current emergency situation caused by COVID-19 forcing the cancellation of numerous events and promotional initiatives, the Club’s activities are in full swing. They continue to pursue their mission in the best way possible … in hopes of being able to meet again soon to raise a glass together, perhaps filled with a good Pignoletto or Albana!
OUR WHITE WINES PRODUCED WITH AUTOCHTHONOUS GRAPES
We are happy and honoured to announce the entry into the Tenute d’Italia network some new companies whose range of products is enriched with wines that are the expression of two territories that are symbolic of Italian viticulture: Sicily and Veneto.
From the largest of the Italian islands - one that has always held a deep fascination for Tenute d'Italia, even inspiring them to dedicate the Stella del Sud line to it - come two of the three new companies in our network: Giasira, an organic company that extends for about 130 hectares between Noto and Modica, and Produttori Etna Nord, a network that involves three production companies that spring from the northern side of the imposing Sicilian volcano.
Deeply bound to their respective territories, these companies base their work on the enhancement of their traditions beginning with its main protagonists: the native vines.In fact, among the vineyards of Giasira triumph the Nero d'Avola, the Moscato Bianco, the Grillo, the Catarratto and, last but not least, the Nerello Mascalese, to which the Etna Nord Producers also assign a leading role in their offer, together with the Carricante.
In addition to this extraordinary primary material, a no less important factor that contributes to making the wines of Produttori Etna Nord and Giasira unique is the terroir: from the volcanic soils - ancient, deep and rich in organic substance - to the calcareous soils of Cava Paradiso, it is in fact the very land itself that nourishes and permeates all these wines, making the purest soul of the island resound in the glass.
Let's travel north now, to Veneto, in Valdobbiadene, to get to know Clara C', a company that is fully justified in claiming a leading role both in the history and in the present (and future) of Prosecco.
Clara Carpené, founder of the company, is in fact the "figlia d'arte" (daughter inheriting her father's artistry) of Antonio Carpenè Jr (1913 - 2010), the wine entrepreneur who helped create the industry and the world of Prosecco as we know them today.
Since 2004, the year in which the company that bears her name was founded, Clara Carpené has been able to combine the best of tradition with an innovative and totally feminine vision of the sparkling wine market, working side by side with the best producers in the area to obtain only the best quality.
We’re delighted to give you a warm welcome to the Tenute d’Italia blog, the new project dedicated to the discussion of the principal topics related to the great world of wine, conceived with the idea of encouraging an increasingly conscious approach to one of the most intriguing and complex products that make up our daily lives.
From the reading of the label to the various methods of tasting, passing through the actual techniques of production, our objective is to compose a story that can promote a greater understanding of the world of wine, offering information and useful tips to navigate our way more comfortably through an increasingly changing market.
We invite each reader, then, to view this blog as a toolbox in which one may find some valid tools for refining their understanding, to stimulate new interests, but above all to evaluate one’s own experience as a consumer.
So, lets lift our glasses and toast the start of this new and exciting adventure!
