The straw that broke the camel's back was the announcement that with the new disciplinary of the Chianti Wine Consortium will also be born Chianti Spruce Selection, the top quality of Chianti wines which will have a higher minimum alcohol content (13 degrees), and an aging of at least 30 months. In particular, it looks at the Chinese and American market. Fiasco is prohibited.

The Black Rooster calls himself incredulous, commenting negatively on the decision he believes (reads the release) not constructive and absolutely devoid of innovative and original ideas of which instead there is always great need. It is also specified in the press release that the  Grand Selection, present on the market by the 2014, is only a type of Chianti Classico, designed by the exclusive work of Consortium of Chianti Classico wine.

"We will make clear opposition to the proposal of Chianti Grand Selection in all institutional locations, "says the president of Chianti Classico Wine Consortium, Giovanni Manetti. "We have suffered a frontal attack, which risks jeopardizing the collaboration path started for some time by the Tuscan wine sector, strongly supported and encouraged also by the Region, which has seen us up to now participating and active protagonists."
