Robust Vipiano Wins Gold Award for Tuscan Blend
Situated in the small village of Vitiano, south of Arezzo, in Tuscany, the producer earned its sixth-consecutive award for the Vipiano brand, a robust blend.
"This victory is really very important for us, it's a great achievement," owner Giancarlo Giannini said.
"The most important problem we faced last year was the extreme drought, which caused a considerable decline in production," he said.
