Slow Wine 2019

Chiocciola and "Vino Slow"

The chiocciola, or Snail, goes to Villa Venti in recognition for the way this producer embodies the sensory, terroir, and environmental values that are in harmony with those of Slow Food. The bestowal of this symbol also means that the winery uses no chemical weedkillers in its vineyards. Wines with the Snail award also reflect a good quality-price ratio, taking into account when and where they were produced.
Primo Segno 2016 wins the "Vino Slow" recognition, the hallmark of a wine that not only displays uncommon sensory qualities but embodies characteristics intimately linked to its terroir, history, and local environment.

“Well done! Mauro Giardini and Davide Castellucci have succeeded in maturing, patiently, over time, their commitment as uncompromisingly enlightened, conscientious, and results-oriented winegrowers."
Romagna Sangiovese Longiano Sup. Primo Segno 2016; Four individual clones of Sangiovese go to make up this wine, each fermented separately and then blended into the final cuvée. The nose is impressive for its fruit, cosseted by a touch of talc, while the palate is juicy and well-structured. Here is a true embodiment of its category, a wine that never ceases to amaze over time.”
