A vintage that will be remembered for temperature above the seasonal averages in spring and summer. Also characterised by a rather cold winter that limited harmful insects.
Unfortunately, there was a sudden return of cold in April that partially compromised the quantitative yield of some vineyards. However, the frost spared the best plots, which resulted in certainly lower yields but of a very high quality.
The following ripening period was rather hot and dry and it was finally able to benefit from the rains in September which rebalanced the situation of drought that was beginning to occur in some soils.
Once again, the careful knowledge of the vineyards, the precise agronomic choices such as not to defoliate to limit the insolation of the bunches and finally the selection of the grapes during the harvesting proved to be decisive in a certainly complex vintage.
To safeguard the quality and the style of our wines, we only produced: Riserva di Chianti Classico DOCG, Campo all’Albero IGT.
