Marcello Lunelli, 53 years old, is the successor of Mauro Lunelli in the role of winemaker for the technical-production sector. He gained a lot of experience first at school and then in the field, that is, in the cellar and the vineyard, through internships and studies in Germany, California, and South Africa. And, of course, in Ferrari next to his uncle.
Marcello Lunelli’s first training was at the Agricultural Institute of San Michele all’ Adige, graduating as a winemaker in 1987. He also graduated in Agricultural Sciences with honors at the University of Milan and then became an
agronomist in 1993. The studies were followed by experiences abroad to deepen, in particular, the new technologies in the creation of “Spumante Metodo Classico”.
At Ferrari since 1995, since 2002 he has been Technical Manager and since 2007 Vice President. Since 1998 he has been Technical Manager of the Segnana Distillery, another company of the group that specialized in the production of grappa. He became President of the company in 2010.
He is currently also president of Tenute Lunelli, an agricultural company that manages the vineyards and produces the family’s still wine with offices in Trentino, Tuscany, and Umbria.
Marcello Lunelli has always been very committed to associations, as his assignments of yesterday and today show. He was president of the Trento Young Industrialists Group for five years, and is currently, after a long vice-presidency, honorary president of Agivi, the Italian Youth Association of Wine within Unione Italiana Vini.
From 2005 to 2010 he was president of Format, a highly trained company of the Industrial Association of Trento, and served as a member of the board of directors of Unione Italiana Vini and the Italian Confederation of Vines and Wine.
Since 2010 he has been president of Fondimpresa Trento, a national interprofessional joint fund for continuing education within Confindustria. Since 2016 he has been on the board of Federvini, the trade association of the wine world within Confindustria.
Marcello Lunelli is married to Roberta and is the father of one daughter, Emma.
