La DOCG Brunello di Montalcino celebrates its first 50 years

In March 1966, with the Decree of the President of the Republic, the Denomination of Controlled Origin was recognized for the San Giovese vine, called in Montalcino “Brunello”.
 To celebrate this important anniversary, 50 years of history, the “Consorzio del vino Brunello di Montalcino ” has involved the world of art and culture to create a symbolic image of the territorial culture that creates a work of art; the Brunello di Montalcino wine. During the Benvenuto Brunello 2016 that takes place in Montalcino from the 19th to the 22nd of February 2016, the new vintages will be presented: Brunello 2011, Rosso di Montalcino 2014, and Riserva 2010. At the same time the 2015 Celebration Tile will be presented, a special edition for the 50th anniversary, designed by 5 of the most respected and important representatives of the global contemporary art scene:
Sandro Chia artist, painter and sculptor among the protagonists of the “Transavanguardia Italiana”, constantly traveling around the world to find new flows and exchanges of inspiration and also producer of an excellent Brunello di Montalcino called “the Castle of Romitorio”.
Pino Deodato through his painting and his simple and poetic sculpture tells ” Le cose che ci sono ma non si vedono “: the feelings, the emotions of the human soul trying to make accessible topics that would be difficult to explain.
Mimmo Paladino a painter, sculptures, engraver, great set designer and photographer among the main exponents of the “Transavanguardia Italiana” ; one of the first modern Italian artists who created important urban installations with an archaic and dreamlike style.
Gian Marco Montesano an artist, writer and director of ironic and dramatic theater who investigates history and our past; he creates images to remember the emotions of our past.
Studio Bertozzi e Casoni founded by Giampaolo Bertozzi and Stefano Dal Monte Casoni, they invented a new way of making contemporary ceramics; they unite in their works of art the irony and the disintegration of contemporary society.
We are very curious to see how these brave modern artists will have interpreted the celebratory 50th anniversary of the DOCG Brunello.
