There are 4500 to 5400 vines per hectare with a yield of about 7 tons of grapes per hectare. Vines are trained to Cordone speronato and Guyot. Harvesting is done manually. The average age of the vines is 20 years. Vinification in open truncated cone-shaped oak and steel vats for the alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation in barrique, where the wine ages for 10 months. Bottle refinement for 6 months minimum.

Tasting Notes

The high thermal regime of the summer among the hottest of recent years has been greatly attenuated by the heavy rains of June and August that allowed the vines to get to the even early harvest in optimal conditions. Then a normal September climate slowed the ripening race. The harvest began on August the 28th and ended on September the 29th. The whole period was accompanied by mild and sunny days with no rain. This has encouraged a proper ripening of the skins and seeds and a high presence of extracts, which will benefit for a long life of this wine. The Bolgheri Rosso 2015 is characterized by a strong classicism in its typical balsamic and fruity expressions, accompanied by a remarkable balance of texture and taste persistence
