VINCI – TUSCANY
The meteorological trend in 2020 was characterized by scarce rains in the first winter months. The vines began to sprout at the end of March in the middle of cold days with temperatures sometimes below zero degrees. Flowering began between 20th and 25th of May depending on the variety, with a regular course favored by an ideal climate characterized by hot, dry and slightly windy days. As a consequence, an excellent fruit set was noted which led to a good architecture of the bunches, characterized by a beautiful elongation and branching of the rachis.The only rains occurred in June. The veraison on Sangiovese began slightly earlier than in recent years. The heat of August limited the presence of harmful insects. Water stress phenomena were highlighted due to the dry climate and very high temperatures. The harvest of the white varieties of the sparkling wine bases began in the second half of August, the first week of September for the Vermentino and in the middle of the month the Sangiovese, Colorino and finally Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. A production of 15% less than the previous year, an excellent vintage from a qualitative point of view.
Cold maceration at 5°C for few hours. Fermentation in stainless steel at 12°C-16°C The wine is transferred to the autoclave by adding selected sugars and yeasts to start the second fermentation. After 60 days the sparkling wine is bottled.
