Marco Pallanti, winemaker at the Chianti Classico estate Castello di Ama, has been elected to head the Italian region's trade association.

Pallanti was today (17 July) president of the Consorzio Vino Chianti Classico. He will be assisted by vice-presidents Nunzio Capurso, director of the Melini and Machiavelli estates, and Francesco Colpizzi, president of the Castelli del Grevepesa co-operative.

"The culture of a territory can express itself in multiple ways and wine is one of these expressions," said Pallanti. "Today technology is partly responsible for globalizing the world of wine.  We are ready to prove that Chianti's Gallo Nero is the emblem of a unique and inimitable terroir."

The Consorzio Vino Chianti Classico represents 96% of the area's total production.
