GRAPE HARVEST 1 – WHITES 2017: THE VINTAGE UNDER THE SIGN OF LEO

We have never started harvesting so early: on August 8th we picked the first bunches of Chardonnay grapes. The first vineyard to be harvested was that of Silente delle Marne. In the case of this wine we decided to make two harvests to maintain good acidity and freshness in a vintage so full of aromas and texture. Drought and high temperatures have resulted in bunches remaining small as well as the grapes that compose them. On the whole those who like us has been spared from spring frosts and summer hailstorms can say: little but good grapes.
In mid-august we finished harvesting all the white wines that are now fermenting in our historic cellar: Salidoro and Silente delle Marne 2017 were born under the Sign of Leo and we are sure they will reflect its soul and character in the glass!
