Rosso Toscana Pinot Nero IGT - 2019

A rich and generous vintage that offered abundance to the vines during the entire vegetative cycle. Rainfall was abundant during winter and spring time and temperatures remained mild all the way up to June 10th, after which high pressure settled on the Mediterranean bringing a warm and dry summer that lasted well into September. Thanks to the abundant water reserves accumulated by the plants during springtime, the grapes were able to face the hot summer and ripen fully without suffering any stress. The harvest took place over six days from the 9th to the 20th of September. The healthy and fully ripened grapes have given life to a wine of great structure and phenolic richness with a solar and generous personality.
