The 22nd edition of the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles has closed in success. This is the most important international event, seen as the “the world champion competition” of wine. This year, it was held in the town of Jesolo (Ve) on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd of May. The participation from five continents is vast. 45 different nations sent 8000 samples of wine, which were tasted in just three days by 55 commissions, each made up with 5/6 members. A new initiative that was much appreciated were the 6 laboratories offered to the members of the commission, to explain about some of the most important Italian wine varieties, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Primitivo, Nerod’Avola and Vermentino.
It was more than just a contest of repeated sensory analysis to identify the best labels, but also an important moment for the diffusion of the Italian wine culture, especially in this year of Italy’s hosting of the international competition. It is an event that has seen continuous increase in attention and participation, with an extra thousand samples sent compared with the previous Italian edition held in Palermo in 2010.
TEMA Riserva has gained the silver medal.
