Wongraven's Senza Compromesso Rosato 2020 Wins Gold Medal in Mundus Vini 2022!
Wongraven's Senza Compromesso Rosato 2020 has won a Gold Medal at the Mundus Vini Spring tasting, it has been announced. Mundus Vini is the flagship wine competition in Germany and one of the most prestigious in the world, with the competition allowing top producers to pit their wines against the best in the world. Gold medal-winner Senza Compromesso, shows delicate aromas of rose hip, tea leaves and both dark and sour cherries, and is fruity and juicy on the palate with medium plus body, superb freshness and a dry, long finish. Producer and company founder Sigurd Wongraven commented: "This award is testament to the sheer quality of Senza Compromesso, a wine that's an expression of my passion for the terroir of the Piemonte region. A rosé for red wine lovers, Senza Compromesso uniquely showcases how rosé styles don't need to be simple and straightforward. I have tried to create an "interesting" rosé with complexity and potential for ageing, and it's great that the expert tasters at Mundus Vini appreciated this carefully crafted, individual style".
