Brunello association president Cinzano resigns: “Mission accomplished.”

In a report published yesterday by Decanter.com, Francesco Marone-Cinzano, president of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino (Brunello producers association), announced his resignation, telling writer Adam Lechmere, “My mission is accomplished.”

News of Cinzano’s resignation comes on the heels of an Italian government decree that essentially stripped him of his powers as the association’s president. According to the Decanter report, Cinzano denied that he had been forced out of the job, claiming that “any differences between the government department and the Consorzio had been ‘resolved’, and that he and the minister [Luca Zaia, who signed the decree into law] now saw eye to eye.”
