The Grand Cru d’Italia Association

I Balzini belongs to the Grandi Cru d’Italia group, an association founded in 2005 to protect and promote the prestige of firms which have produced excellent wine for at least 20 years, wines rated with consistently high scores.

Just as in France, where the classification of the Grand Crus was established by law in 1855, the Italiann crus are intended to indicate wines produced on Italian soil from either native or international grapes which have obtained high level recognition for their quality from publications or from the most authoritative Italian and international guides to wine.

I Balzini was selected utilizing rigorous criteria of quality, keeping fully in mind the history and tradition of the estate in the viticultural sector and its consistently reliable production of fine wine over the years.
