A New Award for Quality Wines

After the “Five Diamonds” award conferred to excellent wines, from January 2004 on will also be awarded wines that join good quality to a convenient price

 As it is already known both to our readers and to producers who ship their wines to us in order to be evaluated, the system used by our publication for expressing judgments about the quality of a wine is represented by diamonds and stars. Scores are expressed by a minimum of one diamond up to five diamonds, whereas the star is awarded to the wines that in their category have particular characteristics which distinguish them from the others. To the wines which have scored five diamonds, or five diamonds and one star, is conferred by the tasting committee a specific award which certifies the results obtained during our evaluations.

The new DiWineTaste's award for good value wines

 From January 2004 on, we decided to award those producers who are capable of offering to consumers good quality wines at a convenient price. Wines considered by our tasting committee as good value products, must score a minimum of three diamonds and not exceed a specific retail price. The limits for prices are set according to the specific categories of score and will be updated according to the condition of the market. Prices considered for the award will vary according to the category of the score: a five diamond wine considered as a good value product, will however be more expensive than a three or four diamonds wine.

 This new award introduces some modifications to the Wines Guide as well as in the reviews published on DiWineTaste. Every wine awarded as “Good Value” will be marked in the Guide and in the reviews with the symbol of a sun in a red background (), displayed just after the score expressed by diamonds and stars. The browsing of the Wines Guide, available at our WEB site, has been modified in order to allow the searching of good value wines. To the usual searching criteria has been added, next to the score, a new input field, marked by the sun on a red background, which indicates the inclusion of wines to which has been conferred the award.
