Castello del Terriccio 2016...

CASTELLO DEL TERRICCIO 2016<br /><br />Denomination: I.G.T. Rosso Toscana (Castello del Terriccio)<br />Producer: Castello del Terriccio<br />First vintage: 2000<br />Grapes: Syrah, Petit Verdot<br />Analytical Data: 14% Vol.<br />Soil type: The soils are rich in iron minerals with the presence of stones and fossils. The perfect slope towards the Mediterranean sea, a unique reflection of the sun, a<br />gentle coastal breeze and plenty of sunlight promote a unique and exclusive ripening.<br /><br />Training system: Spurred Cordon<br />Planting density: 3,600 vines/Ha. for old vineyards; 5,600 vines/Ha. for new vineyards<br />Climatic trend: 2016 was certainly one of the most regular vintages of the last decade. Rainfall met the vines' needs punctually: abundant in March, regular in May and June,<br />important at the end of July and, finally, a warm and sunny August and mid-September. Temperatures were optimal: a mild end to the winter that had caused concern was<br />then regularised by a tenably cool spring that slowed down the development of the bunches, which then benefited from the hot but not torrid summer, with significant<br />temperature swings. Cluster growth was regular and optimal, production was good and ripening was perfect.<br /><br />Harvest period: Harvesting was strictly by hand and took place for the Syrah and Petit Verdot grapes from mid-September. After an initial selection in the vineyard when<br />harvested by hand, the grapes are carefully selected a second time on arrival at the winery on the sorting table.<br /><br />Winemaking notes: After manual selection on the sorting table, the grapes are gently destemmed and pressed, taking care not to break the skin of the berries. Alcoholic<br />fermentation takes place in stainless steel open-cap fermenters at a controlled temperature, with maceration of the grapes, for about 20 days. Daily dèlestages allowed the<br />extraction of the aromatic bouquet and the right balance<br />tannicity, with important structure that will allow long ageing.<br /><br />Ageing: The wine is aged in first and second passage French oak Tonneaux for a period of about 22 months and then blended and bottled.<br />

Vecchie Viti NIPOZZANO 2019...

Vecchie Viti NIPOZZANO 2019...

Castello Nipozzano<br />Nipozzano Vecchie Viti 2019<br /><br />Chianti Rufina Riserva DOCG<br /><br />This wine, chosen by the Frescobaldi family to continue the tradition of reserving a Private Collection for its newborns, originates from the oldest vines of Castello Nipozzano,<br />endowed with a deep root system. Of great complexity and harmony, it is aged for 24 months in oak barrels in the ancient Tuscan tradition.<br /><br />Climatic trend: at Castello Nipozzano, winter 2019 was characterised by long periods of sunshine with low temperatures. Spring, on the other hand, was cool; the rains that<br />fell ensured good water reserves to face the hot summer days. The summer period was characterised by temperature fluctuations that helped to provide coolness during the<br />night, with the usual breezes from the slopes of the Apennines contributing in particular. The grapes were therefore accompanied to maturity by a combination of the warmth<br />of the sun and refreshing breezes; the bunches arrived at the harvest in perfect condition and the production expressed itself with wines typical of the area, marked by a<br />good<br />acid vein and silky tannins.<br /><br />Technical notes:<br />Varieties: Sangiovese and traditional complementary varieties<br />Alcoholic grade: 13.5%.<br />Maturation: 24 months in barrels<br /><br />Vinification and maturation: The grapes of Sangiovese and traditional complementary varieties, as soon as they were harvested, were immediately delivered<br />in the winery. Here, once destemmed, the spontaneous fermentation process took place in cement tanks. At the end of this, the wine remained in the vats to complete<br />maceration. Its journey continued in wooden barrels, where the wine remained to mature for the necessary time. The subsequent period in the bottle allowed for greater<br />balance of all the components, giving the possibility of fully appreciating its essence once the bottle was opened.<br /><br />Tasting notes: Vecchie Viti 2019 has a wonderful intense ruby red colour. On the nose one recognises floral hints of violet that are accompanied by more fruity notes of<br />black cherry, plum, blueberry and blackberry. Notes of pepper and cinnamon are also interesting along with hints of walnut and walnut husk. This is rounded off by the<br />wonderful and typical balsamicity accompanied by an elegant toastiness. On the palate, the acid-alcohol balance is impressive, the tannins are velvety.<br />The minerality perceived on the finish is also extraordinary. Good persistence.<br />

La Vite Lucente 750ml...

LUCENTE 2019<br /><br />Cold and sunny winter, the spring was characterised by low average temperatures and high rainfall, which allowed the creation of important water reserves in the soil. This<br />situation of low light and rainfall resulted in a slight delay in the vine's vegetative cycle. Flowering took place between the last days of May and the beginning of June. The<br />season then continued regularly, with a hot summer, without any particular temperature peaks, with some rainfall between the end of July and the beginning of August.<br />The mild September temperatures and good water reserves favoured a slow and regular ripening.<br /><br />Tasting Notes: The wine is an intense purplish red colour. The nose is characterised by notes of ripe red fruit, raspberries and sour cherries are joined by sensations of<br />vanilla and a light balsamic hint. On the palate the attack is soft, balanced, well supported by a pleasant freshness and smooth tannins, characteristics that together with<br />the sweet aftertaste give the wine length and persistence.<br /><br />Grapes: Merlot, Sangiovese<br />Harvest period: Merlot: 12 September, Sangiovese: 23 September<br />Sugar at harvest: Merlot: 252 g/l; Sangiovese 250 g/l<br />Total acidity at harvest: Merlot: 6.50 g/l; Sangiovese 7.05 g/l (in tartaric acid)<br />Fermentation tanks: stainless steel thermo-conditioned<br />Fermentation temperature: 28°C<br />Type of ageing container: partly new, partly used barriques<br />Length of ageing: 12 months<br />Analytical Data<br />Alcohol: 14.5% Vol.<br />Total acidity: 5.56 g/l<br />PH: 3,49<br />

Luce 750ml Tenuta Luce...

LUCE 2019<br /><br />The 2019 vintage was late and balanced. After a cold and sunny winter, the spring was characterised by low average temperatures and high rainfall, which allowed the<br />creation of important water reserves in the soil. This situation of low light and rainfall, mainly concentrated in the month of May, resulted in a slight delay of 10 days in the<br />vine's vegetative cycle. Flowering was evenly completed in the first week of June. The season then continued with a hot summer, without any particular heat peaks, with<br />some rainfall between the end of July and the beginning of August, which ensured a vigorous and efficient leaf apparatus. The mild temperatures in September and a good<br />level of hydration of the soils favoured a slow and regular ripening of the grapes, resulting in perfectly ripe tannins with high aromatic intensity and freshness. The harvest<br />began in sunny weather on 12 September with the first Merlot grapes, and continued with the Sangiovese in late September and early October. The wines are structured,<br />showing balance, power and great ageing potential.<br /><br />Tasting Notes: Luce 2019 shows an intense ruby red colour. The nose impresses with floral hints of violets and roses, accompanied by red fruits of raspberries and sweet<br />spices. In the mouth it is balanced and elegant, with an almost creamy texture, supported by silky, well-integrated tannins. The persistent finish lingers on spicy notes.<br /><br />Grapes: Merlot, Sangiovese<br /><br />Analytical Data:<br />Alcohol: 14.40% Vol.<br />Total acidity: 6.03 g/l<br />PH: 3,49<br />

Brunello di Montalcino 2015...

Brunello di Montalcino 2015...

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG<br /><br />'CastelGiocondo is a unique place in Montalcino, where the great variety of exposures and soils - marl, clays and Pliocene sands - give this Brunello infinite nuances. A<br />multifacetedness of notes that evolve over time and make me continually want to discover, savour and remember.' Lamberto Frescobaldi<br /><br />Climatic trend: 2016 was a challenging year, long, with many stresses, but in the end one of the best ever. The particularly mild winter resulted in budding slightly earlier<br />than normal: buds could be seen opening as early as the end of March; on the other hand, spring was cool and with several rainfalls, culminating in a very un-summery June<br />with temperatures below the average for the period. A temperate spring therefore, which led to a progressive slowdown in the vegetative phases and consequently a delay in<br />flowering and subsequent veraison. The hot summer, but without excesses, with some providential rainfall in August, meant that the vines faced the last stage of ripening in<br />an excellent physiological state and with perfectly healthy grapes. Then, the last ten days of September, rich in sunshine, temperature swings between day and night, a<br />cool, dry north wind with very low humidity levels, allowed us to complete a punctual, accurate harvest, with fragrant, very ripe, healthy, perfectly balanced grapes.<br /><br />Vinification and maturation: the careful care taken in the vineyard, together with the typical features of this unmistakable terroir, led to a beautiful harvest. The Sangiovese<br />grapes were harvested by hand and, once in the cellar, subjected to scrupulous selection. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, with<br />frequent pumping over especially during the early stages. The wine then underwent ageing in wood, where it was allowed to mature, refine and balance. CastelGiocondo<br />Brunello is ready for release 5 years after the harvest and only after further bottle ageing.<br /><br />Tasting notes: CastelGiocondo 2016 represents a further chapter capable of telling a magnificent story. Its colour is an intense, lively ruby red. Its broad bouquet is<br />extremely elegant; the nose is initially pervaded by fruity sensations.<br />Scents of small berries and ripe red fruits predominate, accompanied by an elegant floral note. Opening it up reveals spicy scents and a balsamic hint, making it extremely<br />balanced and complex. In the mouth it reveals a dense and elegant tannic texture which, together with its characteristic mineral sensation, envelops the palate and<br />impresses with its harmony. The finish is long, warm and persistent, with the sweet spicy and balsamic components returning.<br />

Ripassa Valp. DOC 2018...

Ripassa Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Superiore<br /><br /><br />Immediately after the fermentation of the Amarone raisins, the best selection of Valpolicella 'ripassa' on the Amarone marc, starting the second short fermentation; in this<br />way the alcohol content increases and a product richer in colour, extracts and aromas is obtained.<br /><br />After ageing in French oak tonneaux for 18/20 months, it is then left to rest in the bottle for 6 months.<br /><br />The result of this process is a refined and concentrated wine, extremely soft and velvety, with intense aromas of small red fruits.<br /><br />Ripassa offers fruity scents and fine tannins on the palate, with an aura of chocolate and spices. It represents one of the most significant wines in Zenato's oenological<br />evolution.<br /><br />Grape varieties: 85% Corvina Veronese, 10% Rondinella, 5% Corvinone.<br />Geographical location and characteristics of the vineyard: hilly area of Valpolicella, south-eastern and south-western exposure.<br />Average altitude of the land: 250-300 metres above sea level.<br />Soil type: predominantly cretaceous, calcareous<br />Training system and planting density: guyot, with about 5,000 vines per hectare.<br />Average age of vines: 10/15 years old<br />Number of buds: 8/10 per plant<br />Yield per hectare: 100 quintals<br />Harvest time and method: first and second ten days of October. Manual harvesting.<br />Vinification: The grapes are destemmed and macerated in stainless steel fermenters for 10-12 days. After alcoholic fermentation, the new wine is separated from the skins<br />by means of a soft press and stored in steel tanks until January, when the dried grapes are pressed to produce Amarone. At this point, the Valpolicella is 'repassed' on the<br />Amarone marc with a 7-8 day period at a temperature of 25-28°C. This is followed by 18 months of refinement in tonneaux and a few months of bottle ageing in temperature-<br />controlled environments.<br />Colour: deep ruby red.<br />Bouquet: intense, fine and persistent, with hints of black cherry and plum.<br />Taste: harmonious and velvety, with good structure.<br />Serving temperature: 18°C<br />Food pairings: an excellent companion to game dishes, grilled meats and roasts, cured meats and mature cheeses.<br />
