Bellavita Awards Amsterdam is the leading awards programme dedicated to recognising authentic Italian food and beverage in the Netherlands. Over 200 judges (buyers, importers, restaurateurs, chefs, sommeliers, retailers and F&B experts) scored the nominated products according to 6 criteria: taste, story, packaging and branding, relevance for the local market, innovation and sustainability.
In 2020, the wine world had excellent results, with the “Imperfetto” Sangiovese Superiore by Amaracmand winning the first prize in the Beverage category and the Nebbiolo d'Alba by Dogliani winning the Best Brand Identity award. And yet, Cinque Sensi won the first prize for the Food category with their product “La Giardiniera di Morgan”, while the Most Innovative Product and Chefs’ Choice prizes went to Novafood with their chocolate with peperone crusco and to Subissati with their salami Morellino di Scansano, respectively. Finally, the special Taste Good Award went to the coffee “Europa” blend by Hardy Caffè.
