“A powerful and persuasive wine”
It comes from the vinification of a single varietal, our best Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
It depends on the performance of the vintage: the grape variety that has best expressed itself becomes the first and only actor in the wine for that vintage. A wine that is always characterized by high intensity, structure, body and complexity.
Frosts in April (18th/20th ), have hit some zones, going to jeopardize part of the budding that had been from good to excellent in the whole region. This gave negative repercussions on all subsequent phases. The year was then marked by the high temperatures and the drought that affected the whole region, difficult to compensate through irrigation rescue operations because of the lack of rain. These conditions have resulted in an insignificant incidence of disease in the entire region and in healthy grapes, with a higher gradation than the last five years. The drought damages the youngest Sangiovese vineyards. The rains at the beginning of September have instead raised the grapes quality level in our oldest vineyards. Harvest was anticipated 18/21 days.
