Harvest 2013

The 2013 vintage ended with the onset of intense autumn rains, as expected, given the current trends in seasonal climate. The grapes showed a nice accumulation of aromatic substances and the polyphenols were good, having matured slower than in recent years. 
The harvest of white grapes for our Vin Santo - Malvasia, Trebbiano and Grechetto – took place in the first half of September as is the tradition at Palazzo Vecchio. The harvest of the red grapes, such as Sangiovese, Mammolo and Canaiolo, came later and promise to be a great vintage.
