Winter was quite mild and characterised by abundant rain. The first days of April were hot and brought about an early bud burst, almost 10 days earlier than usual. By 20th April, all the Sangiovese buds were 10 centimetres long. May was similar to previous vintages except for a thunderstorm that caused a little damage. Summer was very hot with above-average seasonal temperatures, but sporadic rain meant vines avoided heat stress. The grapes ripened very well and by the end of September most of the Sangiovese was ready for harvest. This wine is ruby red in colour. On the nose it has intense aromas of blossoms, wild berries, and mineral tones. On the palate, it shows bright acidity, evident but supple tannins, and impressive structure breadth.
