The results of the world's largest wine competition have finally come out. In this difficult year all three wines of Casa Lucii presented at the Decanter World Wines Awards 2020 convinced the international jury by winning two silver and one bronze medals. Let's discover together the award-winning wines and their reviews.
Vernaccia di San Gimignano "Casa Lucii" 2019: Decanter Bronze Medal, 87 pts
Our Casa Lucii 2019 convinced the jury with its fruity aromas accompanied by great freshness and acidity. Defined as an ambitious and structured wine, it is perfect for an aperitif with friends and to pair with fish dishes.
"Ambitious and textured, displaying orange skin, melon and peach run through with fresh acidity."- Decanter World Wine Awards 2020
Tuscan Rosé "Spicchio" 2019: Decanter Silver Medal, 90 pts
Our Tuscan Rosé Spicchio 2019 has gone from a bronze medal in 2017 to a silver medal in this edition of Decanter. Spicchio has impressed for its crunchiness and the aromas of berries obtained by careful processing of Pinot Noir and Ciliegiolo grapes.
"Multi-layered and crisp, with crushed strawberries and basil to the fore, then wild herbs, green peppers and raspberries emerging." - Decanter World Wine Awards 2020
Tuscan Red "Arturo" 2015: Decanter Silver Medal, 91 pts
The most awaited prize was perhaps that of our Rosso Toscano Arturo 2015. The silver medal confirms the excellent quality of a 100% Sangiovese wine born from careful work in the vineyard and in the cellar.Arturo 2015 convinced the jury as a "wonderfully concentrated, elegant and crisp" red wine perfect for meditation and to be accompanied with chocolate.
"Aromatic notes of candied red berries, cherry and oregano, with similar elements flowing on to the fine-grained palate which is wonderfully concentrated, elegant and crisp." - Decanter World Wine Awards 2020
The participation in international competitions is always an important decision that allows us to share the quality level of our wines with a very wide audience of consumers. We obtain exceptional wines, worthy of note, only when our oenological idea manages to enhance the aromatic potential of our grapes inextricably linked to the vineyards of origin. In synthesis, it is always a matter of bringing the best expression of our wonderful territory to the bottle through teamwork from the vineyard to the winery. We are satisfied with the outcome of the Decanter World Wine Awards 2020 and we will try to improve our wines even further starting from what seems to be an excellent harvest.
