Description of the year 2018

The 2018 is considered a cold and rainy year, winter and spring have been characterized by heavy rains until June and I was abundant even in the end of August it was dry and hot. Temperatures were often below average and it was never heat peaks, only the month of July was more constant while September had lower temperatures The vines had a good growth in June, but with a marked delay due to low temperatures, budding was in mid-April and flowering a nice may. The stable weather in July facilitated the beginning of the veraison, but the rains at the end of August and the beginning of September slowed down the maturation. Luckily the end of September was dry and I felt maturity. Harvest date October 4 with excellent quality.

Grape: 100% Sangiovese

Harvest: the slightly late harvest of these grapes results in a very fruity wine with significant body. The grapes are harvested by hand.

Vinification: in the cantina, after a light pressing of the bunches, fermentation takes place for 25 days in steel vats at controlled temperatures, where the wine is subject to periodic pumping up and dèlastage.

Aging: the wine is refined together with the lees, in vats that have an average capacity of 30-35 hectolitres sothat an optimum equilibrium is achieved. Before being placed on the market the wine undergoes an ulterior 4-month refinement in the bottle.

Characteristics: dark garnet red, with a generous nose, it has aromas of dried flowers, spices, and ripe fruits. It finishes long.

Combinations: A very good accompaniment for game, beef, and seasoned pecorino cheese.
