who I am

Filippo Bartolotta is not just a professional taster – he is an experience journalist with a discerning nose that allows him to explore and interpret the aromas within each sip of wine. Over the last 25 years, he has dedicated himself to the art of professional tasting, participating in major wine shows and reviewing thousands of wines for a number of esteemed publications.

Beyond the world of wine, Filippo’s expertise extends to diverse realms, including cheese, extra virgin olive oil (EVO), balsamic vinegar, coffee and chocolate. He is also a certified professional chocolate taster and that showcases the breadth of his sensory abilities.

As a member of the Order of the Italian Journalists, Filippo channels his tasting experiences into compelling narratives about wines and producers. His writings grace the pages of reputable publications such as Decanter Magazine UK, Mamablip.com and he serves as the Italian correspondent for The Drinks Business UK.

Beyond his journalistic contributions, Filippo has distilled his extensive professional journey into a captivating book, “Di Che Vino Sei? Discover the wine tailored for you” published by Giunti Editore. Not only this work reflects his personal experience: it also delves into the psychology of taste, capturing the essence of his profound knowledge of people and the nuanced psychology of flavor.

Filippo’s unique sensory analysis skills are seamlessly interwoven with a cultural sensitivity that goes beyond the realms of taste. He is a natural-born motivator, inspiring and connecting with audiences on a deeper level.
