2017 VINTAGE FEATURES

Not easy vintage, extreme temperatures with scarse rainfalls and hot weather. Thanks to well-organised vineyards management we were able to protect grapes from the eventual damages of hot weather. Grapes were harvested 3 weeks earlier than usual, berries were very healthy and crunchy.
This wine is warm, has powerful entrance, balanced tannins and good acidity, making it a good expression of Sangiovese’s character.
