“Produced exclusively in the 2016 vintage!”
A fresh and fruity bright rosé wine made by Sangiovese and Merlot grapes from the youngest vineyards of Castello di Gabbiano estate.
Considerably scarcer than average in terms of quantity, but capable, in every region of Italy, of overcoming climatic excesses unscathed, providing healthy and beautiful grapes, balanced in terms of alcohol and acidity, and heralding great wines.
After the April frost event, in Tuscany, the unusual heat and drought in summer further effected grapes reduction (the youngest vines did not reach the full growth) and translated into low yields as well. September was propitious: sunny, with good temperature ranges day and night, some gentle rain and good ventilation thus enabling us to harvest some very well ripened sangiovese grapes in October.
The result was : very low quantity and yeald but some very high quality Sangiovese grapes from the oldest vineyards, surprising for complexity and elegance, definitely above our expectations this year.
