Consorzio del Vino
Brunello di Montalcino®

Vintage quality evaluation

Every year the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino classifies the new wine production in order to Communicate the information regarding the Montalcino harvest and its wines Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino, Moscadello di Montalcino and Sant’Antimo.

The evaluation takes place in the months of January of every year, by having wine samples of the latest harvest undergo chemical/physical and organoleptic analyses.

The Tasting Committee that carries out the tests is made up of 20 technicians operating in Montalcino, with extensive experience in the production of this area.

Evaluation in stars of the vintages from 1945 to date  

The evaluation is expressed in stars, corresponding to the following classification:

alt

- insufficent vintage alt (one star)
- fair vintage altalt (two stars)
- good vintage altaltalt (three stars)
- exellent vintage altaltaltalt (four stars)
- outstanding vintage altaltaltaltalt (five stars)

The declaration of the stars assigned to the vintage takes place in February each year, as part of the event "BENVENUTO BRUNELLO".

Commemorative tiles

Starting with the 1992 vintage, the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino commissions a commemorative tile to place on the wall of the Town Hall in Montalcino. The tiles are created by people from the world of art, sport and show business, Italians and foreigners alike.  The tiles are ceramic, measure 30x30 cm and include the reference year and the number of stars assigned.

The plaques are hung in February each year during the event "BENVENUTO BRUNELLO".
