Guide to the Best Wines of Italy - 4 Viti AIS

Guide to the Best Wines of Italy - 4 Viti AIS

The Italian Sommelier Association was founded on 7 July 1965. In 2014, after almost 50 years of history, the publishing project "Vitae" was born, which includes the new quarterly magazine and the Guide to the Best Wines of Italy published by the Association.

Guida Vini AIS

The most important prize awarded by this guide is the 4 Viti AIS. In addition to this, region by region, the 22 labels that best represent their territory receive the prestigious "Tastevin", the best Italian wines capable of expressing a strong territorial identity, and the best of biodiversity awarded by Ais Sommeliers, the Italian Sommelier Association.

Obtaining the 4 Viti AIS is a recognition of great importance for a winery, just think that in 2021, 2014 wineries were reviewed after almost 30,000 wines, all tasted strictly blind. Of these labels, only 694 wines received the 4 Viti AIS, the maximum score.
