On November 1, 2017, the Italian presidency of the UN Security Council began after ten years of intermission. To celebrate this historic occasion, a selection of special vintage red wines from some of the most important winemakers in Italy was presented by the Italian Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Sebastiano Cardi, to members of the UN Security Council, including major global powers, such as France, Japan, the United Kingdom, Russia and the United States.
The selection of wines, which is the most exported Italian product in the U.S., was curated by the president of the Italian Wine & Food Institute, Lucio Caputo. Caputo chose select producers and wines to try to give the best possible image of Italian wine and to represent the most prominent winemaking regions of the country, together with the most important denominations and types of wines.
