Seasonal trend: the 2016 vintage profile was standard, without any health problems in vineyards. The only noteworthy event was the low rainfalls registered at the end of July when veraison was going on, but the water stress was overcome by rainfalls at the end of August and beginning of September. The balance was also supported by the heat regularity without extreme spikes in the last month, and this helped grapes ripening with no overripe or cooked fruit.
The excellent summer saw low rainfalls and high temperatures in July and August, but above all the great night temperature shifts allowed to expect wines of high levels of aromatic profiles and excellent acidity. More than other, this is a vintage that highlights the features of Sangiovese: extract values, anthocyanis, polyphenols and unique and concentrated varietal aromas.
