Brunello vote results final: no changes to appellation

Results of the open voting have been counted and no changes will be made to the "disciplinare" for Brunello di Montalcino. We are very pleased and glad to see that Brunello will remain 100% Sangiovese.

Here are the results of today's vote at the Assembly of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino (the number of votes are based on the number of hectares planted to vine and the number of bottles produced and quantity of wine produced of each winery member of the Consortium. Some wineries did not vote on all "quesiti" or propositions):
