  • The growing cycle began with a significant delay, with some rains during the Spring. June was marked by cooler temperatures, under the seasonal average. August and September were hot and dry, but the ripening, despite two weeks delay, have been supported by water reserves of the previous months. Summer nights were characterized by cooler temperatures, contributing to the improvement of the quality of the grapes. From the end of September, rainfall was abundant, causing problems during the repining, without affecting the vineyards.

  • The vine’s growth cycle started at the right time with particularly mild and dry weather in April and May. Sunny days in June were then followed by copious rainfall in mid-July, accompanied by a significant drop in temperature. August was fairly cool, but the region was then covered by an anti-cyclone weather pattern originating from Africa, which led to a spike in temperatures, reaching well above the average for the period and lasting for around two weeks, putting the vines under hydric stress and accelerating the ripening. September and October were sunny and dry with very hot temperatures.

  • The start of the growing season was slightly delayed, with abundant spring rainfall and temperatures in May and June well below the seasonal average. The weather was warm and dry from mid-June through August, when temperatures dropped again. Cool nights helped the development of aromatics and the synthesis of polyphenols in the grapes, enhancing the overall quality of the bouquet and the wine’s acidity. Scarce rainfall allowed for ideal harvest conditions.

  • The winter, with levels of precipitation above the seasonal average and quite mild temperatures, was followed by a very normal spring, in terms of both rainfalls and temperature. The months of May and June were marked by some rain, with pretty cool temperatures through mid July. The hail storm which took place in mid-August 15th struck only part of our vineyards, sparing our best quality grapes and resulting in only a slight decrease in production. Overall, each of the various growing phases of the vineyard took place slightly later than in previous years, including a two-week postponement of harvest to allow for optimal conditions.

  • The seasonal conditions were marked by a severe spring frost and by one of the most severe heat waves in European history that greatly anticipated the start of the annual harvest. Fortunately, the heavy rainfall of the previous winter allowed for abundant water reserves in the soil, thus avoiding the risk of hydric stress for the plants. The spring frost, combined with the hot summer, allowed for a rich and concentrated fruit, even if greatly reduced in quantity. Most importantly, normal patterns of significant variations between daytime and night temperatures returned, adding finesse and complexity to this very good vintage. The exceptionally healthy berries of this vintage allow for an optimal quality harvesting.

  • A rainy winter was followed by a cool spring which allowed for an optimal development of the vegetation until mid August, but then the torrid temperature (over 37°C during the day and 20°C during the night) put the plants under a severe hydric stress that stopped the synthesis process and accelerated dramatically the maturation of sugars. This critical situation was skillfully managed anticipating the beginning of the harvest and operating with a soft approach (night harvest). This allowed to minimize the risks of extracting bitter compounds and aromas It was one of the most challenging vintages in our estate’s history.

  • This was a year to remember for its climate. In fact, all phases of development experienced optimal weather conditions for both the early-maturing Sangiovese and the later maturing Cabernet. A rainy winter was followed by a cool spring which allowed the vine to develop balanced vegetation, leading into a hot but not torrid summer. Because of this, the grapes were able to arrive at a balanced maturity of sugar content, tannins and aromatics. In fact, the broad range in temperatures between day and night throughout the autumn allowed both grape types to develop intense varietal aromas.
TASTING

The floral notes, above all the typical violet hints of Sangiovese, blend with great elegance into the small berry fruit flavors (blueberries, wild strawberries and myrtle berries).  The wine’s freshness on the palate makes it extremely pleasurable, thanks also to the presence of a refined structure of soft tannins and a delicate astringency.
