THE CONSORTIUM OF BRUNELLO CONDEMNS THE ACT OF VANDALISM AGAINST GIANFRANCO SOLDERA AND HIS COMPANY CASE BASSE
The President of the Consortium of Brunello di Montalcino, Fabrizio Bindocci, would like to demonstrate his solidarity with Gianfranco Soldera in condemning this act that has affected all the producers of Brunello and the entire region of Montalcino and would also like to express the solidarity of all the 250 member companies of the Consortium who feel directly affected by such a shameful episode. "As per tradition, the community of Montalcino businesses will not leave this company alone to suffer such a harsh and cowardly act, but will support it in a way and at a time our friend Soldera considers most appropriate. I reiterate the solidarity of the entire Consortium and I concur with the views expressed by the Mayor of Montalcino, Silvio Franceschelli, concerning this despicable and cowardly act in urging against reading too much into the incident or instrumentalizing the affair in order to respect the image that a region like Montalcino has in the world, a quiet place where criminality is rare and a far cry from the spirit of honesty that characterizes both old and new inhabitants. This act of vandalism against Soldera does not change this image even though it should not be underestimated."
