Viticulture Vintage & Winemaking

Viticulture Vintage & Winemaking

The 2016 vintage was excellent for the grapes brought to the cellars of our Chianti estates. The grapes were healthy and nicely rich in extract thanks to the fairly regular weather conditions, which gave us well-structured wines. 2016 was a generally normal year, without health issues for the vineyards. The summer was excellent overall, with little rain and high temperatures in July and August, but above all, marked temperature variation at night, which should translate to wines with high quality aromas and acidity.
