Morellino di Scansano 2021
After a mild winter thanks to the presence of the very close sea, the vineyards of Poggio al Lupo resumed their harmonious vegetation under the warm and enveloping climate of the Tuscan Maremma. Soon temperatures reached important tenors, but state-of-the-art techniques in managing canopies and soils allowed us to defend the clusters from the summer heat, restoring balance to the vineyards. By the end of the season, tenuous sun warmed the vineyards during the day, which cooled at night thanks to sea breezes. The skeleton-rich soils at Magliano in Tuscany enhanced the temperature and aroma excursions in the grapes, bringing them to even ripeness.
