2020 Harvest: the winemaker’s words

(…read here previous episodes)  It is always the very last weeks of the grapes ripening season to determine the final quality of the vintage. The 2020 vintage was not easy from a qualitative point of view although the conditions were excellent up to 3 weeks before harvest.  With the late September and early October rains, everything got complicated. Having a large extension of vineyards, every year we find different expressions in our SANGIOVESE vineyards: this year more than ever the location...

2020 Harvest: the End!

(…read here previous episodes)  Our harvest is ended, all grapes are in the cellar.  This year the harvest was a little earlier in the younger vineyards that had suffered a little from the high temperatures and water stress during the month of August.

There are approximately 50 hectares of Sangiovese, Cabernet and Petit Verdot still to pick.
