CONCLUDED THE ONLINE AUCTION OF ORNELLAIA VENDEMMIA D'ARTISTA 2017 SOLAR ORGANIZED BY SOTHEBY'S

CONCLUDED THE ONLINE AUCTION OF ORNELLAIA VENDEMMIA D'ARTISTA 2017 SOLAR ORGANIZED BY SOTHEBY'S

THE AMOUNT THAT WILL BE DONATED TO THE SOLOMON R. GUGGENHEIM FOUNDATION OF NEW YORK FOR SUPPORT OF THE MIND'S EYE PROGRAM IS $ 315,000 (267,000 ¤).

The donation was made possible thanks to the Ornellaia Vendemmia d'Artista 2017 "Solare" project and the sale of precious bottles designed in a limited edition by the artist Tomás Saraceno. For the past twelve years, Ornellaia has been carrying out this charity project aimed at supporting foundations and museums around the world through the union of wine and art. Since the last edition, thanks to the collaboration with the Guggenheim, the project has raised funds to support an equally innovative and generous initiative: the Mind's Eye program of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Mind's Eye was created by the Guggenheim's education department precisely to give the joy of art even to blind or visually impaired people. Art, just like tasting a wine, involves all the senses, and it is this common thread that has prompted the Bolgheri maison to donate the proceeds of the annual Vendemmia d'Artista auction to this program. Giovanni Geddes da Filicaja, CEO of the Bolgheri estate, said: " the great success that the Mind's Eye program is having thanks to our donations, in addition to filling us with pride, offers us the possibility of extending the same model not only in other museums. of the Guggenheim foundation, but also in other art institutions in the rest of the world, ensuring that this excellence continues to guide museum programming for the blind and visually impaired. And not only that, our desire is to make accessible the art to all people around the world. " At the end of the auction, which took place online from 1 to 9 September and was auctioned by Sotheby's, Richard Armstrong, Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation declared: "Thanks to the continued support of Ornellaia, the Guggenheim was able to offer greater access to our programming and to achieve even deeper public involvement. We express our gratitude to Ornellaia for their generosity and for recognizing the importance of programs like Mind's Eye. " Ornellaia Vendemmia d'Artista 2017 "Solar" The Ornellaia Vendemmia d'Artista project celebrates and describes the character of each new vintage of Ornellaia. Every year, since the release of Ornellaia 2006, a contemporary artist signs a work of art created for the estate and a series of limited edition labels, drawing inspiration from a word chosen by the Director of the estate, Axel Heinz to describe the vintage. "Solar" is the character identified by Axel Heinz, to describe the wine born from the 2017 harvest: "it was a year of extremes, in which sun and heat played a decisive role. Adapting to the climatic conditions with softer and more precise practices , we were able to give voice to this strong and decisive personality of the vintage. " On the red thread of these words, Tomás Saraceno gave his interpretation of Ornellaia 2017 Solare. The artist drew inspiration from the alliance between the sun and inhabited living systems, in an invitation to a practice of care and renewed attention to the most important source of energy on our planet: the sun, in fact, represented in the evolution of a 'eclipse. The theme of sustainability is explored through floating spheres such as those of "PNEUMA 4.21x105", the suspended sculpture of Salmanazar, and the special thermochromic labels, which, like the ecosystems we live in, are sensitive to heat.

Morellino di Scansano 2020 harvest volumes decreasing high quality

Morellino di Scansano 2020 harvest volumes decreasing high quality

There is optimism among the producers of Morellino di Scansano. The drought has reduced yields by at least 20%, but the grapes are healthy and allow us to have excellent expectations for the vintage.

The 2020 harvest has recently ended in the Morellino di Scansano Docg area and there is satisfaction within the Protection Consortium after listening to the first impressions of most of the producers of the appellation.   "This 2020 has put all of us to the test, with scenarios that were unimaginable just a year ago. The appellation has been able to maintain its market share, despite everything. which promises to be high " says the director of the Consortium Alessio Durazzi .   The main cause of the consistent drop in production is to be attributed to a substantially dry month of August. The turning point came in September, close to the harvest. "At the end of August and then throughout the month of September the rains allowed the vines to rebalance and the grapes were directed towards a practically perfect ripeness, a fundamental aspect for obtaining a superior quality" - concludes Durazzi.   All the production areas of the seven municipalities that are part of the appellation - Scansano, Campagnatico, Grosseto, Magliano in Toscana, Manciano, Roccalbegna, Semproniano - thanks to the seasonally balanced finale from the meteorological point of view, they managed to harvest perfectly ripe grapes with an excellent balance between sugars and acidity.   "This year is configured as a year of excellent quality - states Bernardo Guicciardini Calamai , president of the Consortium. " It is a result that repays us for the efforts that all of us producers, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, have had to face due to the delicate moment of health emergency we are experiencing, adapting internal structures and organizations to the regulations in place " .   "We are certain that the market, in the face of less than usual volumes, will appreciate and above all enhance an excellent harvest - concludes the president -. The grapes have great potential thanks to the achievement of an optimal phenolic ripeness; the vintage wines , they will have great olfactory intensity that will make them satisfying from the beginning of their marketing, while for the Reserves there are all the conditions for obtaining wines with structure, balance and longevity " .

Asolo Prosecco continues to grow and adopts the harvest reserve

Asolo Prosecco continues to grow and adopts the harvest reserve

The measure was approved by the Shareholders' Meeting in order to guarantee full future availability of the product

The 'Shareholders' Meeting dell'Asolo Prosecco, which met yesterday in Asolo, passed a resolution that not only are not reduced yields per hectare, as have decided many other denominations, but that provision is made even with the upcoming harvest in 2020 to require so-called harvest reserve , assuming that the excess production of the Asol DOCG could in the future be converted to Asolo Prosecco in the event of excess demand. The demand for Asolo Prosecco from domestic and foreign markets continues to remain lively and this has prompted the Protection Consortium to adopt a measure that guarantees full future availability of products against existing contracts. Specifically, the decision taken by the Asolo Prosecco Consortium Assembly focuses on the use of the so-called countryside surplus , i.e. the 20% production tolerance that the legislation allows beyond the yield of 135 quintals per hectare envisaged by the specification. The measure now taken means that this excess can be temporarily blocked on the cellar records, and that the Consortium, if the demand continues to grow and once the members are heard, can in the future release it as Asolo Prosecco. “Given the times - comments the president of the Asolo Prosecco Consortium, Ugo Zamperoni - what we have assumed for Asolo Prosecco is a decidedly counter-trend . In recent weeks the news of the world of wine is telling us, in fact, of many restrictive measures, rather than expansive measures such as ours. The fact is that last year's harvest was qualitatively exceptional and this is helping to retain an increasingly demanding public, so much so that the charm of our hill cru is conquering new markets and new consumers, unexpected only up to a few months does. Up to 30 June, Asolo Prosecco's performance was 8.3% higher and the signals we receive seem to indicate that the growth trend continues . Given the non-homogeneous dynamics as in the past of the denominations similar to us, we need to maintain a certain competitiveness as a denomination, avoiding that an excess of demand leads to a tension on prices. Last but not least, it is necessary that all existing contracts can count on a minimum of stocks capable of satisfying any new request, something that the provision of the harvest reserve that we have taken on fully guarantees ".

Covid does not stop the rise of the "crus" of the Asolo hills: 8.3% in the first half and the Consortium does not foresee yield cuts for the next harvest.

The rebranding underlines the strong link between the tradition of Prosecco and the territory of Asolo, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, and Italian consumers believe the union between the name Asolo and the name Prosecco is inseparable.
