According to report posted today on his blog by VinoWire editor Franco Ziliani, legendary Langa producer Bruno Giacosa has confirmed rumors that his long-time enologist Dante Scaglione (above, left, with Bruna and Bruno Giacosa) will return to the winery and resume working with the great Nebbiolo maestro again.

The decision was reported by VinoWire editor Franco Ziliani on his blog.
According to reports previously published in Italy (notably by Mr. Ziliani and by Enoclub Siena), the producers association had offered its members the option of presenting IGT wines (i.e., wines that did not meet Chianti Classico appellation requirements) for an additional fee of Euro 50 per wine.
The sea change represents a victory for proponents of traditional winemaking - including wine bloggers and winemakers - who vehemently opposed the inclusion of IGT wines within the framework of the appellation's official new vintage release debut, held annually in Florence.
According to anecdotal reports obtained by VinoWire editors, members of the producers association also voted against proposed changes in appellation regulations that would have created a new and "less restrictive" DOC intended to accommodate the production of "Supertuscans" [sic]. (Proposed changes had been previously published by the finance and politics blog Il Fatto Quotidiano in a post entitled "Chianti Classico Masochism?".)

In a memo sent to members of the Chianti Classico producers association and obtained by VinoWire editor Franco Ziliani, Chianti Classico producers will be allowed for the first time to present one IGT bottling on the second day of the annual vintage debut event, to be held February 15 and 16, 2011, at the Stazione Leopoldo events space in Florence.

The following story was first reported by VinoWire editor Franco Ziliani via Sommelier.it, the official site of the Italian Association of Sommeliers.
In a two-part video interview posted here and here via YouTube last week by Italian wine writer Carlo Macchi (editor of the online food and wine magazine WineSurf), the newly elected president of the Brunello Producers Association (Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino), Ezio Rivella, dropped a bombshell when he said that before the Brunello scandal broke in 2008, "80% of the wine" labeled as Brunello di Montalcino "was not pure Sangiovese. He added that "only small amounts of other grapes, up to 5%," were blended into the wines but, when pressed, he confirmed that "it was a widely accepted practice."
When asked about his plans to revitalize the appellation, he told Macchi that his top priority was to stabilize pricing among the growing number of bottlers of Brunello. Many, he said, were selling low-quality wines at extremely low prices labeled as Brunello.

"One of the greatest and most extraordinary people in the world of wine," wrote VinoWire contributor Franco Ziliani in a heartfelt tribute to the beloved and revered maestro of the Italian wine world, "the greatest nose and the greatest palate I've ever met, Giorgio Grai turns 80 today."

With his wines, wrote Franco in a profile devoted to Grai and published on the Italian Sommelier Association website, "Giorgio Grai has taught a tide of persons (myself included) the importance of the central concepts of wine - balance, drinkability, and elegance - by maintaining them as its indisputable and timeless cornerstones.

Although some observers, including VinoWire editor Franco Ziliani, have questioned Zaia's motivation for waiting until last week to make the announcement, Mr. Ziliani praised the minister's statement in his blog today: "It's never too late," he wrote, "to raise one's voice, to take a tough stance, and to demand severe, clear-cut sanctions. The world of Italian wine must find the courage to free itself of scum like these parasites. They are a virus that threatens not only its health but also the credibility of Italian wine throughout the world."
