We are thrilled to share the news that the 2012 vintage of the Sedilesu Mamuthone has been awarded the Tre Bicchieri (Three Glass) prize by the editors of the 2016 Gambero Rosso Guide to the Wines of Italy (please note that the 2011 is pictured above).
The 2016 winners for Sardinia were announced today.
The Tre Bicchieri award is arguably Italy’s most prestigious accolade and it is reserved exclusively for Italy’s top wines.
It was created by Daniele Cernilli — the Italian wine critic now known as “Dr. Wine” — who based the rating on the fact that a bottle of wine contains six glasses of wine and that a bottle is always shared by at least two people.
If each person drinks three glasses, the reasoning goes, it must be an exceptional bottle of wine.
Now in its 26th edition (when the 2016 version will be released), the Gambero Rosso Guide to the Wines of Italy is the Italian wine trade’s bible.
