Francesco Cillo won a Gold Award for its Otello Intense Fruity, a robust blend produced by Francesco Cillo in Basilicata, Italy.

"This campaign has been positive," said Andrea Amadori, owner of Francesco Cillo. "It was a year with the principle of a regular winter with infrequent rainfall and a spring characterized by a mild climate. The production, which has increased compared to the previous year, has ensured healthy and high-quality olives, ripened in canonical times.
