Vintage 2011

LATE AUGUST: Another year, another harvest, once again different from the previous ones.
What remains the same is our passion for our work, as always we wish to obtain the maximum from the grapes which Nature gives us. The growing season of the grapes has, in various occasions, gone through periods of rapid acceleration and brusque stops. In particular a very warm early spring, which greatly advanced the various phases of vine and grape development, then rain and lower than usual temperatures during the first part of the summer, which once again slowed down ripening and growth. In mid-August, instead, heat, truly scorching heat. W are already ready with the harvesting shears to begin with the Merlot.

SEPTEMBER 2011: We have picked our first grapes.
The cellars, already perfectly neat and orderly before picking began, have received the first bunches which various industrious hands have placed in the small packing cases which, after a brief ride on the tractor with its trailing cart, arrived in the cellars. It was still very hot in the vineyard, and it is easy to imagine the relief which the grapes felt when they went into the casks, suitably cooled to receive them Now another of nature’s wonders must occur: the sugars present in the grapes, must be transformed, with the aid of native yeasts, into alcohol … a new wine is being born.

... our hands move carefully among the green leaves to position the shoots.
Our arms seem to join with other arms: the vineshoots.
And our faces are always looking up to see if it is raining or fine
We suffer so much in bad years, perhaps just as much in good years
Because then it is all down to us... Marco Capitoni
