Winter was mitigated with some cold days with temperatures below zero. Springtime was very mild with medium-high temperatures that allows a regular vegetative budding. Summer months were generally excellent with low rainfalls and high temperatures in July and August, balanced by good night temperature shifts.
All the phenological phases (budding, flowering, ripening and veraison) were perfect. It is a high-quality level vintage that, more than others, highlights the features of Sangiovese: extract values, anthocyanis, polyphenols and unique and concentrated varietal aromas.
