Hello to everyone and welcome back from the holidays and buon 2010, happy 2010 to you!
One of the first things that we want to share with you in this new year are the many new features on the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino website and we will write a few new posts about those items this week.
Perhaps the most important is the new traceability portal which allows visitors to track the provenance of any bottle of Brunello di Montalcino.
To illustrate the ease of the usage, we telephoned to a small retailer of fine wine in the state of Illinois, in the city of Chicago, is named Perman Wines. We spoke to Craig Perman, the owner, who carries our wines and he sent us the above photo of the DOCG pink label on the bottle of 2004 Brunello di Montalcino by Il Poggione.
We then are going to visit the new traceability portal created by the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino here: http://www.consorziobrunellodimontalcino.it/en/traceability.html
And we enter the information from the menus: Brunello di Montalcino, 0,75 lt. and then the code series which is "AAI" and then the number of seal which is the "01439939". When the datums are entered we see the informations about the number of bottles produced, the alcoholic content, the dry extract content, and the acidity content, and other informations as well.
To be continued...
