Italy and Chianti are turned out in pole position as the most awarded and representated by Wine Spectator inside the Top 100 lists released in the last couple of years.

Regardless of the classification system used, the excellence for a wine is always between 90 and 95 points, denoting a very high quality product. Given that most of the wines (or at least most of the wines reviewed) get between 80 and 90 points, the watershed to recognize the excellence of a wine (and consequently its very high quality) is the threshold of 90 points.

Chianti La Pieve and Chianti Fortebraccio Riserva wines, with an average score of 91 points for the Chianti La Pieve and of 93 points for the Chianti Fortebraccio Riserva, are therefore classified as real excellences among the best Italian wines. The scores of 91 and 93 points are derived from the average of the various scores assigned to these two superior high quality wines over the years by numerous experts (sommeliers, critics, influencers, etc.) and specialized sector magazines.
