Pagliereto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG 2015, from the Winery Lunadoro (property of Schenk Italian Wineries), has just conquered its first Tre Bicchieri, the top wine award by the “Guida Vini d’Italia del Gambero Rosso”, one of the most authoritative international wine guide. This is an important achievement for this small but renowned winery, acquired in 2016 by Schenk Italian Wineries, and constantly growing in quality and brand awareness.
Lunadoro Pagliareto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG 2015 has been presented to the wine specialists at the top of its expression, due to an outstanding vintage, which led to the creation of a unique wine, thanks to the optimal grape ripening conditions and the skillful job of the winemaker Maurizio Saettini and the agronomist Egidio Finazzer.
Dens tannins, purple Mediterranean forest and undergrowth black berries, with a pleasant fresh note bouquet and crispness and length on the palate, turn Lunadoro Pagliareto into an elegant and intense wine, perfect expression of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Docg, represented in 2019 Guide edition only by five Companies, including Lunadoro.
The awarding Cerimony will take place on Saturday, 27 October at 10.00 in the morning, on the occasion of that which is considered the biggest wine tasting in Italy: stars of the event will be all the labels awarded by the guide Vini d’Italia 2019 with Tre Bicchieri. The appointment is in Rome at Sheraton Rome Hotel and Conference Center – Viale del Pattinaggio 100.
A new important partnership has begun for Schenk Italian Wineries, which has been sponsoring the Team Del Conca Gresini Moto3 since the Catalunya Grand Prix. We have chosen our Prosecco Bacio della Luna as brand to flank Fabio di Giannantonio and Jorge Martin, who are intensely competing in the 2018 Moto3 World Championship. Leading yet in 2017 the Gresini Racing’s aperitives in the paddock, Bacio della Luna takes even more hold in the MotoGP World Championship with an important place on the riders’ leathers number 21 and 88.
Daniele Simoni, Managing Director, Schenk Italian Wineries:
“We are very proud as a group to become partners with Team Del Conca Gresini, a prestigious team that was founded by the great Fausto Gresini. This squad is always seeking fresh new talents and is right there with them in their rise to stardom, as it is happening right now with two young riders, Fabio and Jorge. This is an area where Schenk Italian Wineries has found common ground with Team Gresini: the will to believe and support young talents in their desire to emerge and succeed, while supporting their growth and enhancing their skills. It’s an honour to be part of this effort and to be present on our riders’ corner with the sparkling bubbles of Prosecco Bacio della Luna.”
Fausto Gresini, Team Manager:
“It is a great news and very important to see that companies such as Schenk, which were already tied to our team as hospitality partners, have decided to increase their presence and become official sponsors. Youth, freshness and quality are common attributes between our institutions. It has been so far a season of great excitement and I’m sure the best is yet to come.”

Bacio della Luna is beside the Alma Basket Trieste, a historical team with 5 conquered championships and which is back to the A league after 14 years. After leading both regular season and play offs, the Team led by Andrea Coronica regained the Italian basket highest category by the Junior Casale Monferrato hosts, last Saturday, June 16th. Our Prosecco Bacio della Luna has been the Basket Trieste 2004 sponsor since 2013 and last Saturday it was there to celebrate this great success, as at every match before, enhancing the joyfulness and relieving the defeats. The connection between Schenk Italia and sports is actually growing, lately increased by sponsoring the Gresini Racing motor Team. For the future we hope to celebrate more and more victories with all the teams we are sponsoring. Congratulations again to the Alma Basket Trieste for the great results and the deserved promotion.
