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: updating from the cellar

(…read here previous episodes)  The harvest keeps, the Sangiovese grapes that have already reached their full ripeness arrive in the cellar and undertake their transformation process. Most of these sangiovese grapes will perform the alcoholic fermentation in small stainless steel - only for some of these grapes our choice falls on the wooden fermentation. In this case we use so-called "exhausted" barriques, of third or fourth passage.

2020 Harvest: updating from the vineyards

(…read here previous episodes)  Harvest is still on: we harvested about 5,000 quintals of grapes over 100 hectares - low yields (less than 45 quintals/hectare) our FORECAST is confirmed. There are approximately 50 hectares of Sangiovese, Cabernet and Petit Verdot still to pick. We started to harvest the best Sangiovese grapes for our  Riserva Chianti Classico:  great SATISFACTION, the Sangiovese grapes are still healthy and beautiful, despite the repeated rains. The CONCERN is fairly represented by the water-soaked soil, in some vineyards we...

Approching 2020 harvest

Approching harvest is a highlight of the year in a winery. A path that comes to an end. The climate, the choices that were made and the work of the whole season will be summed up in each bunch of grapes that we will pick. The grapes that we will bring to the cellar will be this year’s first report card. It was a favorable season by a climatic point of view - both in terms of rainfall, abundant in autumn and early spring,...

An unusual harvest!

Nature never stops, the cycle of life continues, always, at all times, whatever condition humanity is experiencing. This is the positive message that nature gives us. We take it.
