Climate

2017

The 2017 vintage was characterized by a climate which was substantially hot and dry, one marked by very little rainfall. These unusual climatic conditions favored an early bud break and much precocity in the successive phases of the vegetative cycle. The harvest, characterized by low production but excellent quality in the grapes, began between August 10th and 20th, two weeks earlier than the preceding vintage.

Winemaking

2017

The harvested grapes were destemmed and then given a very soft pressing. The resulting must was chilled to a temperature of 50° Fahrenheit (10° centigrade) to favor a natural static settling of the impurities. After 48 hours, the must went into stainless steel tanks where it fermented at a temperature held to a maximum of 59° Fahrenheit (15° centigrade). The elaboration of the finished wine in small lots before bottling  assisted in obtaining a rosé which is always fresh and fragrant.

History

Cipresseto was given this name – which recalls the cypress trees which dot the Tuscan landscape in 1998 – to underline its Tuscan character and was one of the first rosé wines to be produced in Italy. Today it is a wine closely tied to the vineyards which supply its grapes and, as such, reflects a production philosophy based on quality at every level of price. The wine, in fact, is a concrete example of how fine quality can be achieved along with excellent value to consumers and wine lovers.
