La Montina awarded at DWWA 2018
More than 270 of the world’s top wine experts have gathered in London to judge the 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards, the world’s largest wine competition.
Nearly 17,000 wines were judged at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2018 (DWWA 2018) judging week by 275 international experts, including 59 Masters of Wine and 25 Master Sommeliers from 33 countries.
The DWWA judging took place in Excel CentrEd, where judges worked in small teams according to their regional or stylistic speciality to blind taste this year’s entries. This year, the DWWA has received wines from 61 countries.
Christelle Guibert, Decanter’s international tastings director, said, ‘When we launched the DWWA back in 2004 with 4,500 wines, the central purpose of the competition was to reward quality. Furthermore, we hoped to offer an opportunity to those smaller producers who don’t have marketing budgets to be easily recognised internationally, to put new countries on the wine map, and of course to provide authoritative recommendations to consumers“.
The results of La Montina at DWWA 2018 are pretty good, with an increase in points on both extra brut wines:
- Franciacorta La Montina Rosè Millesimato Extra Brut 2010 – 88 points – download the certificate
- Franciacorta La Montina Extra Brut – 90 points – download the certificate
