Vintage notes

An early start after a mild almost frostless winter, abundant rain in the winter and spring, the first heat wave in late may, then 10 weeks of very hot weather between mid-July and mid-August . Then mild fall weather with just the right amount of rain. Easy? With Sangiovese no season is easy, but definitely one of the best in years. Extremely healthy grapes, almost no use for the sorting table!
High yield with great quality! An unusual combination in the past that is becoming more typical because of the extreme change in climate.

Harvest period: 9th September – 7th October

Tasting Notes

Intense ruby red color, elegant balsamic notes mixed with flower, cherry, liquorice and chocolate. Warm on the palate, but extremely pleasant, with great harmony between its full mouthfeel and its fresh finish.
