Tenuta Manoylo. A new star in Marche’s crown


The new Italian winery won the highest Grand Gold and Silver awards at the MUNDUS VINI 2024 competition

The results of the MUNDUS VINI Spring Tasting 2024 have just circled around the world. And the Wine Travel Awards welcomes the first winners – members of its vibrant international community. Literally the “Discovery of the year” for us was the Italian Tenuta Manoylo Tenuta Manoylo – Wine Travel Awards from the Marche region, which has just taken its first steps on the world stage. And here is a resounding victory – the two highest awards: Grand Gold – 2021 Marche IGT Sangiovese; Silver – 2021 Falerio DOC Pecorino. Moreover, Tenuta Manyolo was granted by Mundus Vini the Best of Show Marche for its excellent wine 2021 Marche IGT Sangiovese.


Tenuta Manoylo’s wines were created to showcase the products of a land that, since the times of Picenum and Ancient Rome, has been devoted to the production of fine wines and oils, famous throughout the Mediterranean and Europe. Today, by combining innovative technologies with ancient winemaking traditions, Tenuta Manoylo’s wines offer those who savour them the unique taste of these places suspended in time. Tenuta Manoylo’s vineyards unfurl over the picturesque hills surrounding the medieval village of Moresco and the River Aso Here, between the mountains and the sea, the climate with its mild springs and autumns and its hot summers mitigated by the Adriatic, is particularly favourable for growing grapevines.

The high class performance of these wines was added by the participation in their creation of the talented oenologist Luigi Costantini. This is one of the most authoritative winemakers in Italy, the president of Assoenology Marche. He was born in the Marche region and has been working exclusively with local wines for 45 years. By joining forces with the owners of Tenuta Manoylo and the unique data of the terroir, Luigi Costantini managed to create a pool of brilliant wines at this winery.
