Best Italian Wines Vinitaly 2023: Campania excels but watch out for surprises

May 3, 2023

A month ago the curtain fell on Vinitaly 2023, from 2 to 5 April at the PalaExpo in Verona, a three-day event attended by hundreds of wineries and where over 2000 wines were on show. The 5StarWines - the Book, an oenological selection organised by Verona Fiere in collaboration with Assoenologi, was defined during this event. A jury of wine professionals carried out the bling tasting then, of the over 2200 participating wines, as many as 733 obtained a score of at least 90/100, which earned them inclusion in the prestigious guide.

Below are the various categories and wines awarded at Vinitaly 2023, wines that were then included in the 5StarWines - The Book 2024 guide
