A snail and a bottle to a wine cellar with wines of importance that interpret the
environmental values, identity, territory and sensory. A recognition given in the
new Slow Wine Guide, which awards the seal of Antonelli San Marco Montefalco
(Perugia), Filippo Antonelli. In all, only 160 Italian wine producers have been awarded
in this first edition. The “snails” are the symbols assigned to those wineries
interpreting the following values: sensory, territorial, environmental and identity, in
keeping with the spirit of Slow Food. The “bottle” symbols instead indicate the
presence of important wines. Antonelli is the only winery in Umbria to be recognized
with both values.
