The 53rd National “Douja d’Or” wine exhibition in Asti, held from 6 to 15 September 2019, saw our “Augustale Nero di Troia Riserva Docg 2014” crowned with the prestigious Oscar, a prize awarded to a limited selection of Italian high profile labels that have reached at least 92 cents in the voting. Out of 786 candidates only 29 received the maximum title and we are proud that our best wine is part of this prestigious selection.
Furthermore, Crifo is one of the 164 companies that have obtained at least one prize and collects 3 prizes among the only 7 awarded in Puglia, our region of belonging. Moreover two other jewels from our cellar have received prizes in the prestigious Asti event: the “Augustus Castel del Monte Bombino Nero DOCG 2018” (Douja d’Or Award with 89.2 / 100) and the “Terre del Crifo Nero di Troia Puglia Igp 2017 “(Douja d’Or Award with 87.8 / 100).
The authors of the severe selection of the Competition, now in its 47th edition, are the Onav (National Organization of Wine Tasters), Ais Asti (Italian Sommelier Association), Aspi (Association of Italian Professional Sommellerie) and some sector journalists: Paolo Massobrio, curator of the Il Golosario guide and Alessio Turazza, collaborator of the Gambero Rosso.
The presence of the Asian taster and Onav China member, Wang Lu, underlines the international depth of the event from which Crifo comes out as the leading brand.
