VINTAGE

Denomination

Toscana IGT

Description

Pian di Remole Rosso is a wine that is the fruit of the Frescobaldi family’s centuries-old winemaking tradition. This alluring, superbly-balanced wine opens to fragrant wild red berryfruit, and concludes with a lengthy finish. Maturation in oak has given it fine structure and integration of all its components.

Vintage Report

The excellent weather conditions in April and May provided for an acceleration of the phenological phases of the plants; a particularly hot July helped with the ripening, which took place gradually thanks to the rainfall the following month. August saw a drop in temperatures, which encouraged the plants to divert all the necessary nutrients to the clusters in order to obtain a product of excellent quality from the aromatic and polyphenolic point of view.
