Pater - 2016

VINTAGE

Denomination

Sangiovese di Toscana, IGT

Description

A fresh, dynamic Sangiovese with luminous reflections and an aroma largely dominated by fruity sensations, with strawberry and blackberry accompanying a clean-edged, decisive coffee and liquorice note. This soft, flavoursome wine has a dry, clean finish.

Vintage Report

The regular rainfall during the winter, together with the dry and sunny spring that followed, contributed to a homogeneous development of the leaves. During the first weeks of August, significant rain brought some much-needed respite to the plants, storing all the necessary substances in the clusters to obtain a product of excellent quality. Given the altitude of the growing area, summer dryness is often avoided. September and October were drier with chilly evening temperatures, allowing the grapes to develop and ripen perfectly and bringing pleasant aromatic notes to the wine.
