Una Selezione di edizione in edizione sempre più rigida e che quest’anno richiedeva un punteggio minimo di 85 punti – secondo la metodologia dell’Union International des Oenologues – per superare la prova delle 9 commissioni d’assaggio ma che non ha intimorito il mondo del vino made in tuscany: ben 940 i vini in concorso dei quali 530 hanno superato il test, ossia il 56.4% delle etichette partecipanti. 322, invece, le aziende partecipanti di cui 247 hanno superato la prova (76.7%). Un risultato che conferma, ancora una volta, l’eccellenza dell’enologia regionale.
