Question: Was there just a change made in the Chianti regulations?
Answer: Very topical. Yes the Chianti Classico Consortium this month for only Gran Selezione for now are focusing on 11 new geographic markers using MGA (Menzioni Geografiche Aggiuntive) like Barolo codified since 2010. Appreciate that they are zoning in on specific delineated places that can be listed on the label. This will be helpful for the wine consumer. Well done. Hopefully eventually it will extend as well to Chianti Classico & Chianti in the future. Another important change for Gran Selezione is moving the Sangiovese minimum from 80% to 90% with the balance if any using only local indigenous (autochthonous) red grapes.
