The vintage

A tough yet satisfying year, in which the land of Montepulciano faced the challenges of a summer period characterised by inconsistent and concentrated rainfall. The containment of diseases like downy mildew proved to be tough in such conditions, which is why we intervened with the stripping of leaves to contribute towards grape irradiation, ripening and harvest yield.

Terrain Composition

Sandy clays, poor in cement
