A wine must score at least 80 points to be awarded a Silver medal. To receive a Gold medal, it must score at least 90 points. Pietro Marini Torrontes 2019 was awarded 89 points. This is the highest level of the silver medal. It also received a (V. Value score of 92) and a (Q. Quality score of (88).

This award really validates our winemaking skills.”
Sid Patel (CEO and Founder of Beverage Trade Network) stressed the importance of finding wines with high scores across all three categories. “We believe that it offers an extensive, comprehensive approach to evaluating wine the same way consumers and trade buyers do.”
Patel stated that wine consumers now think of wines as brands. This is just as they think about any other product in a supermarket. Packaging & Presentation was a crucial judging criteria. It means that wine is created with a particular customer or demographic in view.
The panel of judges included experts in wine buying, master sommeliers, and masters wine. High-profile judges ensured that medalist wines in competition had high commercial appeal.
