LE VEGLIE DI NERI 2017

ROSSO TOSCANA IGT

A balanced, soft and elegant wine in which the Sangiovese Dianella blends with the richness and aromas of the Cabernet Sauvignon. An ideal wine for aperitif and in all combinations with seasoned cheeses and meats.

TASTING NOTES
Dark ruby red color. On the nose floral notes well blended with aromas of red fruit and an intriguing balsamic. Decisive and penetrating, in the mouth it is enveloping and highly drinkable with soft and balanced tannins with a pleasant freshness. Persistent finish with a rich fruity aftertaste.

ROSSO TOSCANA IGT

PRODUCTION AREA
VINCI – TUSCANY

GROWING SEASON
The 2017 vintage will be remembered as one of the most anomalous of this century. Winter has been quite harsh. In March, a first anomalous heat wave caused the early budding of the plants which suffered a lot of damage following the April frost wave which caused the desiccation of some shoots, decreasing the production load. After the freeze, there were only a few thunderstorm rains in May and an African anticyclone until mid-August with rare rains and record temperatures, especially in late July. The vineyards responded in an excellent way: very few burns and withering, almost all the plots continued (albeit with great difficulty) to ripen the bunches. Fortunately, since mid-August temperatures have returned to normal and some rains have reinvigorated the vineyards and olive groves. Both the harvest and the olive harvest were brought forward by about 15 days compared to the average of the previous years with a production loss of around 20%.
