Rosso di Montalcino 2013

Rosso di Montalcino 2013

The red wine Rosso di Montalcino Doc Sanlorenzo comes from the youngest
vineyard
on the farm, which opens like an amphitheatre towards the Orcia River
valley and the sea. The land is generally clayey and rocky, and the special
microclimate at over 400 meters above sea level gives the Sangiovese Grosso
cultivated in these vineyards an especially delicate flavour. Vinified in steel vats
at controlled temperatures, this wine is then aged in wooden
barrels
of various sizes to reach an optimum equilibrium. Sixteen months of work in
the cantina is completed with a final aging in the bottle, to bring to the glass a wine
that is very fruity and delicate, but which has considerable body.
The fresh aromas of ripe cherries and the pleasant underlying traces of wood
make it balanced and elegant to the taste, and give it a distinguished flavour.

DESCRIPTION OF THE HARVEST YEAR

Spring began with abundant rains in March. April instead it was sunny
and warm while the month of May showed a greater than average amount of rain
that has allowed the plants to accumulate important water reserves to manage
the summer.
The months of June, July and August were not too hot and with excessive rains in some cases.
The climate being a little more cold than the past few years has delayed both the veraison (August 10) that the maturation of the grapes and it was very necessary to reduce the load of grapes on the plants to encourage full ripening. From early October good and healthy grapes were allowed to wait for harvest for a good maturation.
Harvest date 14 October.
