harvest note

Tuscany experienced a fairly frigid winter, in absence of snow and rains below average. The vegetative growth has been anticipated by a surprising spring, very hot and untimely. Given the hot temperatures, the flowering took place quickly and without interference. The season continued with high temperatures for some periods of the summer, alternating some rains. The vineyards, which enjoy a good maturity and an excellent balance during all the phases of the year, well endured the dry season. Sangiovese, which could be prone to damage caused by drought, did not suffer thanks to irrigations, taking water from the two lakes inside the estate. September started with sunny days alternated with some rains which brought to a very good technological and phenolic maturity which was able to guarantee structured and elegant wines, faithful expression of the vintage.

tasting note

Intense ruby red color. Clean at the nose, characterized by ripe, fruity notes, enriched by hints of spices. On the palate it is smooth, full and warm, with present but integrated tannins. Good persistence.

food pairing

Pairs well with red meat, pasta with meat sauce, & cheese.
