Winter 2013 has been quite milder than recent years but extremely rainy. Falls continued insistently throughout the spring period until the last days of May. These conditions have inevitably caused a delay of the budding. Summer was hot, with high temperatures but never excessive. September was particularly sunny and facilitated the first period of collection which nevertheless started much later than the average. The rains of early October lengthened then the final stages of harvest. The harvest started with Alicante and Merlot in Florence on September the 12th and ended on October the 9th with Cabernet Sauvignon in Panzano.
Dark blueberry and shiitake mushroom turn to mineral and blue furits. Full body, juicy and rich. Gorgeus. Rich style but remains so velvety.
Food pairing: roast red meats, game and medium to mature cheeses.
