New product

The Sangiovese grapes did not reach satisfactory ripeness levels and were excluded from the final blend. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, though picked eight days later than usual, were severely selected and gave wines which were fermented and aged in normal fashion. The wine shows more liquorice and spice than fruit on the nose and more elegance than structure on the palate.

Rains characterized both the initial and the middle period of the 2002 growing season, creating problems both for the pace of ripening and for the health of the grapes. The final – and critical - three weeks of the season – were quite irregular, favorable at the beginning, then marked by heavy rainfall towards the end. The Sangiovese grapes did not reach satisfactory ripeness levels and were excluded from the final blend. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, though picked eight days later than usual, were severely selected and gave wines which were fermented and aged in normal fashion. The wine shows more liquorice and spice than fruit on the nose and more elegance than structure on the palate.
