Documentation of proposed changes to Rosso di Montalcino appellation

VinoWire editor Franco Ziliani has obtained documentation of proposed modifications of the Rosso di Montalcino appellation (see below). The “hypothesis for three typologies [categories] of Rosso di Montalcino” will be discussed in an assembly to be held September 7. The categories are as follows:

1) Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese Superiore: 100% Sangiovese (with a 1% “tolerance” of other grape varieties).

2) Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese: 100% Sangiovese (1% tolerance).

3) Rosso di Montalcino: minimum 85% and up to 100% Sangiovese, “authorized” red grape varieties up to 15% (1% tolerance).

Although it appears unlikely that the 15-member technical advisory committee of the Brunello producers association will call for a vote on September 7, the proposed changes will be discussed in an “ordinary assembly” of the producer members.
