Alex Zanardi and wine: willing to go beyond the limit, his great passion doing his best

The race car pilot and Olympic champion has signed the tile celebrating the “4 star” 2018 vintage of Brunello di Montalcino

“Any person who is dealing with difficulties is also looking for better ways to overcome them and perhaps even turn them into opportunities, just like happened to me. And, since it seems that vineyards do the same thing, we then have this strength in common, just like the wine producers and I have in common the passion to do the very best in what we do, in the vineyards, producing wonderful nectars, and as I do in sports”, Alex Zanardi told WineNews. Racecar driver, paracyclist winner of 4 gold medals at the Olympics, Zanardi has changed the results of the terrible accident that in 2001 took away his legs, into opportunities. He is also a lover of wine and Montalcino, and has celebrated the 2018 vintage at Benvenuto Brunello, creating the celebratory tile of the harvest that received 4 stars (the maximum is 5, ed.).
“I am here”, Zanardi said, “also because of the great friendship that unites me to the Bianchini family, owner of Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona, one of the most prestigious wineries in this wonderful territory”.

The tile he has created features the stars and four sentences that express concepts very dear to him, and which summarize his philosophy and his approach to life, “standing still, nothing happens”, because luck gives us the best opportunities “when we are prepared to meet it”. This is the reason that we also read on Zanardi’s tile “curiosity illuminates the path”, and therefore we need to fill our existence “with great challenges to do the things we love to the best of our ability”.
“A glass of wine seals a moment, an emotion, which I personally see almost spontaneously shared with a friend. Plus, if there is Brunello di Montalcino in the glass, the friend will certainly be a good friend, one with whom you will share memories and passions. Together, your eyes lost in the horizon of a beautiful sunset, you will talk about the meaning of life and the things you think you have understood. This is what I wanted to put in the tile that celebrates the 2018 vintage, and it was a great honor for me to have created it”.
