MARIAVITTORIA and OTTAVIA 2019
VINCI – TUSCANY
Growing season 2019 was atypical. The autumn featured mild temperatures and low rain. Winter started off quite mild as well, then in January came on with temperatures below zero.. Spring began with rising temperatures, but in May these plummeted with lows below 7-8°C accompanied by daily rains. However, grape flowering in the vineyards was regular. From early June, a fairly dry and warm period began, with maximum temperatures often above 35°C, interspersed occasionally by short and intense rains. These latter never led to issues in either the fruit set or the subsequent ripening of the grape clusters. The ripening began regularly at the beginning of August. The harvest then began in the end of August and the grapes were healthy and perfectly ripe.
