Last Thursday, the Board of Directors accepted the resignation of President Ezio Rivella
The new President will remain in charge until next year.
Montalcino, 18th June 2012 – The Board of Directors of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino has unanimously nominated Fabrizio Bindocci as the new President and he will remain in charge until 2013, when the Assembly will designate the new board of Directors.
Fabrizio Bindocci, 57 years old, has since 1999 been the director of the Franceschi family’s Poggione estate (for which he has been working since 1976), one of the historic domains of the Brunello territory. One time vice-president during Filippo Fanti’s administration (1998-2000), he currently was a councillor at the Consorzio and presided the technical commission.
As the new President underlines: “Above all I would like to thank Ezio Rivella not only for the important results obtained during his mandate but mainly because with his profile and competence he contributed to maintain a winning image of Brunello and its territory throughout the world. Nowadays Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino are doing very well on the market and particularly on the international one. We must consolidate this positive trend by moving in a united way on all fronts: production, promotion, distribution and sales. A goal that can only be reached by systematically joining forces on the territory. To-day’s vote should be read in this sense, as a mark of continuity with respect to choices that have brought truly appreciable results at a time that is certainly not easy in all sectors. An important challenge as the following years will decide the future of our presence in the most important emerging markets”.
The President renewed his trust in the three Vice-presidents Donatella Cinelli Colombini, Marco Cortonesi and Giancarlo Pacenti, who will be keeping the positions they held previously. In particular Vice-president Donatella Cinelli Colombini will be engaged in the enhancement of the Consorzio Denominations and a greater development of the Consorzio’s role.
