In 2019, vine development was influenced by spring weather that was initially dry and later became cool and rainy; these conditions caused a delay of the vines’ vegetative growth cycle pushing flowering back two weeks behind seasonal averages. Summer weather was hot with well-distributed rainfall during the entire season. At harvest time, the grapes had a good balance between acidity and sugar levels and excellent aromatic potential thanks to significant variations between day and nighttime temperatures during the final weeks of ripening. Harvesting took place about ten days later than in 2018; international varieties were picked first starting in mid to late September and wrapped up with Sangiovese that was harvested up until mid-October.
