Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) From the climatic point of view, the 2013 vintage was characterized by abundant winter and springtime rain. Bud burst, accordingly, took place 10-15 days later than in recent vintages; the growth and development of the vines were somewhat irregular, as were flowering and bud set, due as well to rains which favored the appearance of fungal diseases in the vineyard. Summer was marked by scarce rainfall and by temperatures which were not particularly warm for the period. Harvesting began in early September with the Pinot Grigio of the Tenuta Moneloro estate, ten days later than in 2012. Pinot Blanc and Rhine Riesling were picked in mid-September. The Trebbiano Toscano and Mavlasia harvest, as usual, began after mid-September.From the climatic point of view, the 2013 vintage was characterized by abundant winter and springtime rain.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2014 Vintage) Straw yellow in color with greenish highlights, the wine is elegant and delicate in its aromas, which recall fresh fruit, like lemon, oranges, and grapefruit. The flavors are balanced, with good length and a savory finish and aftertaste.

Blend: 50% Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia Toscana, 35% Pinot Blanc and Pinot Grigio, 15% Rhine Riesling
