Harvest Note
2018 winter was characterized by average rainfall and some snow, which made up for the considerable lack of water. The year began with temperatures above the seasonal average, which lasted until the end of February, when there was a sharp drop in temperatures with snowfall that affected the whole area, and minimum temperatures reaching almost 14°F. There was some light snowfall and rain during March with minimum temperatures 32 and maximum temperatures above 59° at the end of the month. In April, the month in which the buds opened, rainfall was sporadic and minimum temperatures were around 41°F, increasing suddenly from the middle of the month. Frequent and abundant rainfall in May, accompanied by high temperatures, allowed optimal vegetative development. Flowering began at the end of the month. Thanks to the significant humidity accumulated in the soil, the vineyards were able to withstand the high temperatures of June and July. Fruit setting was completed throughout the whole area by mid-June. There was a slight delay in veraison, which began in the second half of July. August was characterized by weak, intermittent rainfall in the first three weeks and average temperatures of 77°F. Temperatures fell significantly in the last few days of the month, with minimum temperatures occasionally falling below 54°F. This led to uneven ripening, commencing from the end of August. There were some rainy days during the first week of September, with maximum temperatures of 86°F. The limited amount of rain on the grapes guaranteed good ripening. Heavy rainfall and temperatures of around 68°F from the second half of September forced the wineries to bring the Sangiovese harvest forward in order to ensure that the grapes were healthy.
Tasting Note
Intense ruby red color. Neat at the nose, it is characterized by ripe fruity notes, enriched by spices hints. At the palate it is smooth, full and warm, with present but integrated tannins.
