Description

2014 Vintage is available by the bottle at the LCBO in the Vintages section, or by the case through Stem Wine Group - call the office for more info.  416-548-8824. We are really proud of the excellent job done by our whole team in such a challenging year: a constant alert and monitoring ensured perfectly healthy grapes. Nevertheless, not every vineyard reached the standards we expected, therefore we sold in bulk the lots we were not confident with and blended Rennina and Sugarille to obtain the highest level of quality among our vineyards. Only the Brunello label has been bottled from Pieve Santa Restituta in 2014. In Montalcino, the climate trend was different from the last 20 years, more similar to the eighties: presenting mild winter, humid and warm spring and a not-too-hot summer. The abundance of rainfalls during winter and springtime cooled down the soil temperature leading to a slowing down of the vegetative growth of the vines. Consequently, the blossoming came with a delay of almost two weeks in comparison with the previous years. The first part of September was characterized by light Tramontane winds and presented a mild and dry weather. The winds helped in maintaining the health conditions of the grapes and slightly hastened the ripening. Moreover, thanks to the the timely work and the costant care in the vineyards, the grapes reached an excellent maturation and full fuphenolic ripeness. The harvest began on 22 September and ended, without any interruption, on 7 October.
