“At each harvest the rebirth of a myth”. The tile dedicated to the 2020 Brunello di Montalcino harvest, this year created by Federica Pellegrini, who has chosen to represent a phoenix on the decorative tile, is a restart distillate. Symbol of rebirth already tattooed on the neck of the multiple Olympic champion after a difficult moment, the mythological firebird was placed today on the occasion of Benvenuto Brunello "OFF" on the wall of the Town Hall of Montalcino (SI) to celebrate the 5 stars attributed to the last harvest of the iconic Tuscan red, but also the desire to leave again.

"The Phoenix is ​​a sign of good omen and rebirth for wine and for all of us - said Fabrizio Bindocci, president of the Brunello di Montalcino wine consortium -, the same good omen that made us an exceptional harvest in a year as terrible as the one just ended ".

In the pool for 32 years, Federica Pellegrini is the youngest Italian athlete to get on an Olympic podium and boasts the longest career among the Italian champions, with 53 medals around her neck. An ambassador of excellence in sport is the one chosen by the Brunello di Montalcino wine consortium as the face of 2021 in an edition of Benvenuto Brunello "OFF" which marks the debut of an equally 'medal' year, that of 2016, which already it has conquered the palates of international criticism.
