Gambero Rosso 2013

Having waited this long for the English version, my copy arrived this morning. No great surprises to find Fabrizio Battaglino, Filippo Gallino and Giovanni Manzone listed. Well done to them!

Fabrizio was also cited for especially good value for his Roero Arneis 2011, the Gallinos for their Roero Riserva 2008 Sorano and the Manzones for their Barbera d'Alba Superiore 2009 La Serra.

Fabrizio's 2010 Roero Sergentin was a Tre Bicchieri finalist (I still think he should have pushed the 2010 Colla forward!) as was Gallino's 2008 Roero Riserva Sorano. Manzone had three in the final this year, including the 2009 Barbera d'Alba Superiore La Serra and two of their 2008 Barolo wines.

So, what should I be drinking tonight to celebrate their successes?
