Many of our wines have received prestigious national and international awards, putting the denomination under the spotlight: among the protagonists, the Vernaccia Riserva 2015, awarded with the highest score (94) by both Robert Parker and Decanter, as well as that from Wine Spectator, after having already received the highest recognition (5 grappoli) from the Bibenda 2020 guide.
