Belguardo Codice V among the top 10 Vermentino Maremma Toscana DOC wines

Belguardo Codice V ranks among the top 10 wines in the debut edition of the Vermentino Grand Prix, an event that saw the participation of 64 Vermentino wines from different wineries of the Maremma Toscana DOC appellation, evaluated by an exceptional jury.

"Personally, I believe a lot in Vermentino, an extraordinary grape that - if produced and vinified with best practices - is also suitable for long aging and has nothing to envy to the red wines" says Francesco Mazzei, president of the
Consorzio Tutela Vini della Maremma Toscana.

“It is interesting to note that the wines that prevailed were 100% Vermentino and - despite being a minority in tasting - those from older vintages or with particular vinifications, confirming that Vermentino is a complex and long-lasting wine that deserves some extra effort."
