Il BIWA 2017

The Best Italian Wine Award is a prize that brings together a select jury of top experts from different countries who must evaluate hundreds of Italy’s best wines in just three days. The winner of the 2017 edition was Oreno 2015 Sette Ponti. 

From the beginning I have been a member of the jury of the Best Italian Wine Award (BIWA) which this year was sponsored by The Winesider, a company that creates and manages wine cellars for restaurants. The brainchild of Luca Gardini and Andrea Grignaffini has been incredibly successful and the jury today, in my view, is the most authoritative so far while the wines that make up the list of the Top 50 are truly representative of Italian production.

Aside from the award’s two creators and yours truly, this year’s jury was composed of Tim Atkin, Christy Canterbury, Kenichi Ohashi, Amaya Cervera, Antonio Paolini, Pier Bergonzi, Luciano Ferrara and Marco Tonelli. They are all accomplished experts, some are even Masters of Wine, who for three days evaluated over 300 samples of wine in a strictly ‘blind’ tasting.

This year’s results are listed below.

The winner of the 2017 BIWA was Oreno 2015 from Tenuta Setteponti, which will also receive the DoctorWine Special Prize dedicated to the BIWA in our Ultimate Guide to Italian Wine, which will be presented in Milan on October 1.
