Climate

The winter of the growing season, mild in temperature and characterized by frequent rainfall, preceded a spring with above average temperatures, which favored a precocious bud-break, ten days earlier than usual in both grapes varieties. The summer, tendentially warm and dry but without peak temperatures, assisted the vines in a slow and gradual growth, guaranteeing an excellent start to the ripening process. The harvest began with the Merlot in early September and terminated with the Sangiovese around mid-October.

Vinification

The Sangiovese grapes underwent a fermentation aimed at conservation of the aromas and freshness of the fruit. After approximately ten days of maceration on the skins during the fermentation, the wine went into large oak casks where it went through a complete malolactic fermentation and began an aging period which lasted twelve months. After bottling, which took place in the spring of 2017, the wine was given an additional twelve months period of aging before commercial release.

Historical data

The La Braccesca estate, which extends over a total surface area of 1270 acres (508 hectares), consists of two different blocks. The historical nucleus of the property is located in the area of Montepulciano with 257.5 acres (103 hectares) of vineyard in the finest sub-zones for the production of Vino Nobile. The other block, with 592.5 acres (237 hectares) of vineyards, is situated at the foot of the hills of the town of Cortona. The first vintage of the La Braccesca Vino Nobile was the 1990.

Tasting notes

An intense ruby red in color, the wine offers fruity aromas with notes of violets and vanilla. The palate is ripe, supple, balanced and with tannins supported by a pleasurable vein of acidity, which brings out the flavors of blackberries and cherries. Persistent and mineral on the finish and aftertaste.
