The third National Oenological Contest has just ended in Conegliano, the contest dedicated to “Incrocio Manzoni” wines.
Villa Domizia took part in it with PUNTO UNO Terre del Colleoni DOP Incrocio Manzoni 6.0.13, vintage 2020, obtaining a Certificate of Merit in A1 category: DOC White Wines, the most prestigious one. This recognition is allocated to all those wines that have reached or exceeded a score of 82/100 (during the past editions the minimum score was 80). Medals are assigned to the first three wines of every category, that have obtained the highest score, provided that it is higher than 82/100.
During the past editions, the quality of PUNTO UNO has been recognised several times:
- 1st edition (2018) – Bronze medal with vintage 2016
- 1st edition (2018) – Certificate of Merit with vintage 2017
- 2nd edition (2019) - Certificate of Merit with vintage 2018
The National Contest of “Incrocio Manzoni” wines was established by Scuola Enologica (Wine School) in Conegliano, to honour the memory of Luigi Manzoni, Natural Sciences and Plant Pathology professor and headmaster of the institute. In 2020 the contest was not held because of COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2018 PUNTO UNO entered the Top Hundred of 100 best Italian wines according to Paolo Massobrio and Marco Gatti and 2020 ONAV Guide (Organizzazione Nazionale Assaggiatori Vino, that is National Wine Tasters Organisation) assigned a Prosit to it and dedicated a part of the guide.
“This wine originated from an intersection of passions, especially from my family’s ones for wine traditions of Terre de Roveri territory. PUNTO UNO excellence has been repeatedly recognised and this gives us great satisfaction; a reason to continue with our research towards the greatest combination of tradition and innovation” [Enrico Rota - Villa Domizia business manager].
