Castiglioni Chianti - 2017

VINTAGE

Denomination

Chianti DOCG

Description

Thanks to the favourable soil and climate, Chianti Castiglioni reflects its lands’ characteristics as a soft, pleasantly fruity wine noted for its strong and well-defined personality.

Vintage Report

On the hills of Castiglioni the vines began to sprout new shoots in early April following a dry and relatively mild winter. March and April saw a few showers which enriched the water reserves necessary for the development of the young shoots.
The flowering and the subsequent summer season were characterised by a scarcity of showers and high temperatures that allowed the grapes to grow and mature in a healthy environment without the risk of phytosanitary complications.
Thanks to their ability to store moisture, Castiglioni’s typical clay terroirs played an essential role in alleviating water stress caused by the absence of showers in the summer period and helped the grapes to achieve a large concentration of sugars and polyphenols.
