Change at the helm of Angelini Wines & Estates

Ettore Nicoletto will end his term at the end of April, and Alberto Lusini will assume responsibility for the winery starting in May.

Rome, April 8, 2024 - The Board of Directors of Angelini Wines & Estates will appoint Alberto Lusini as CEO, effective next May.

The winery is part of the Angelini Industries Group and consists of 6 wineries, totaling 1,700 hectares of land, including 460 hectares of vineyards, and an overall production of approximately 4 million bottles per year.

A heartfelt thanks for the work carried out goes to Ettore Nicoletto, who, as President and CEO of Angelini Wines & Estates, will leave his position upon the approval of the 2023 financial statements. Over the past four years, he has contributed to restructuring and consolidating the management of the business. The decision was made jointly and in total harmony with the shareholders, considering the first phase of the company's reorganization concluded.

"We thank Ettore for his contribution to the growth of Angelini Wines & Estates and wish him every success in his future endeavors. We welcome Alberto, who will continue the journey of positioning and growing our wine brands in an increasingly global market," commented Sergio Marullo di Condojanni, CEO of Angelini Industries. "We are a multinational Group, but at the same time, we consider ourselves interpreters and protagonists of Made in Italy, a way of doing business that makes quality its mission, and through which we aim to achieve new market milestones."

Alberto, after obtaining a degree in engineering and an MBA, both from the University of Bologna, has accumulated twenty years of experience in the consumer packaged foods sector, particularly in beverages, with an international outlook on the industry. He served as CEO of the American business unit, MZB USA, for Massimo Zanetti Beverage Group S.p.A. In the wine world, he has held managerial positions in leading companies such as Mezzacorona, Allegrini, and Gruppo Lunelli-Ferrari.

"I am honored by this appointment and excited to take on a new challenge in an industry that is particularly dear to me, and with which I have a long-standing connection," stated Alberto Lusini. "Angelini Wines and Estates is an excellent wine group with tremendous potential, and I will focus on enhancing its existing strengths while exploring new avenues for development. I am delighted to join the Angelini Industries Group, a major player at the center of an important growth journey."

"I am grateful to Thea Paola Angelini and Sergio Marullo di Condojanni," stated Ettore Nicoletto, "for the opportunity they offered me to be part of an excellent group like Angelini Industries. It has been an experience filled with challenges, stimuli, and learning opportunities; an adventure that will certainly enrich my professional background. I wish the group continued success in its growth journey in the wine sector and in achieving the ambitious goals set."
