Members of the Brunello producers association voted today not to change their appellation regulations. The following vote results were posted a few minutes ago by wine blogger and winemaker Alessandro Bindocci of Il Poggione, a Brunello producer (n.b.: ampelographic basis denotes the grape variety composition of the wine; current law requires that Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino be made from 100% Sangiovese grapes):
Proposition 1: are you in favor of changing the ampelographic basis for Brunello di Montalcino?
Proposition 2: are you in favor of changing the ampelographic basis for Rosso di Montalcino?
Proposition 3: are you in favor of making other changes to the appellation rules? For example, changing the maximum yields for Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino, Moscadello, and Sant’Antimo? Or allowing for the use of concentrated rectified must?
Proposition 4: are you in favor of grouping all the current appellations, except for Sant’Antimo, in a single Montalcino appellation?
Proposition 5: are you in favor of grouping all the current appellations, except for Brunello di Montalcino, in a single Montalcino appellation?
