Last week VinoWire editor Franco Ziliani traveled to London where he tasted 93 bottlings of 2004 Brunello in the London offices of The World of Fine Wine.
...
"With the quantity of tannins, natural and added," wrote Franco yesterday at his blog Vino al Vino, "and the rushed, emergency enologic intervention revealed by too many samples, your mouth is literally devastated" by such a massive tasting.
"The level of disappointment was noteworthy," according to Franco.

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?".)

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.

The change marks an end to what VinoWine editor Franco Ziliani called a "schizophrenic formula" that ultimately led many producers to leave the fair early and left them saddled with the crush of consumer attendance during the peak of the event, Saturday and Sunday.
