The Piazza Duomo in Alba by Enrico Crippa and the Ceretto family, Le Calandre di Rubano by the Alajmo brothers and the Enoteca Pinchiorri by Annie Feolde and Giorgio Pinchiorri in Florence among the tristellati; The Peca di Lonigo by the Portinari brothers, the DO by Davide Oldani in Cornaredo and the Castel Finedining Restaurant in Tirolo among the bistellati; and still high-end hospitality companies such as the Capofaro Locanda and Malvasia di Tasca d’Almerita in Salina, bistros such as the Tommasi family’s Caffè Dante in Verona, online wine shops such as Tannico and 3k-Wine, large-scale distribution brands such as Esselunga and Iper, distributors such as Partesa, Pellegrini and Le Caves des Pyrenne, chains such as Signorvino and many others: almost 100 restaurants, wine bars, wine bars, distributors who have received the award for “the best wine lists”, reserved for catering establishments, and the “Wine Retail Awards”, for large-scale distribution, assigned by the “Milan Wine Week” 2021.
The list was chosen by a jury chaired by the critic Andrea Grignaffini and coordinated by the sommelier Irene Forni (and made up of journalists, critics and wine educators such as Cinzia Benzi, Filippo Bartolotta, Francesca Ciancio, Asa Johansson, Emanuele Alessandro Gobbi, Andrea Gori, Erika Mantovan, Luciano Pignataro, Antonio Paolini, Simon Staffler). “Hard work, but it was really worth it,” assure the jurors. “In recent months we have analyzed the wine lists of many businesses, looking for the spark, that something that would make them truly special: richness of the proposals, but also refinement, depth, variety and experimentation”.
A full-bodied list, that of the winners, which lacks, it must be said, cult names of good Italian drinking celebrated internationally for their wine lists, such as La Pergola del Rome Cavalieri by Heinz Beck, La Ciau del Tornavento di Treiso by the chef Maurilio Garola, the Cracco Restaurant in Milan, the Antica Bottega del Vino in Verona, a reference for wine lovers, now owned by the Historical Families and led by Luca Nicolis, or the Farming Poet of Alberobello by Leonardo Marco, for example, who, for years, they have received the “Grand Awards” awarded worldwide by the American magazine “Wine Spectator”, for example. But each award is an award in itself, which responds to different selection criteria, judgment and sensitivity.
