Italy continues to achieve important milestones at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles (CMB). After medals in Abruzzo, it's up to Veneto to receive honors. In the rosé wine session, Bardolino Chiaretto Classico Villa Cordevigo Gaudenzio 2019 from the Vigneti Villabella winery was awarded the recognition of international rosé wine revelation. Leading among the over one thousand rosé wines tasted from around the world.

Rosé wines from around the world

The session dedicated to this type of wine saw 55 international tasters gather in Croatia to taste a total of 1205 rosé wines. The types ranged from still wines to sparkling wines, coming from 32 countries around the globe. Only 13 Grand Gold Medals were awarded to as many labels, including Bardolino Classico from Vigneti Villabella. However, the winery brings home much more than one recognition in the same category: three gold medals (Villabella Rosato 2023, Villabella Heaven Scent 2021, and Villa Cordevigo Biologico 2022) and one silver with Villabella Spumante 2022.

Italy in the realm of rosé wine

Reviewing all the winners, however, paints a flattering picture for Italian production, with a total of 76 awarded wines. In addition to the Gaudenzio 2019, the Grand Gold Medal was also awarded to two other wines: Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo Sangro Rosato 2023 from Cantina Frentana and Chiaretto di Bardolino Classico InAnfora 2022. Instead, among the regions with the highest number of medals, we find Puglia (26) and Veneto (16). Numbers that confirm the potential of Italian production.
