VINTAGE 2015

Waiting for availability of red wines

VINTAGE 2014

The year 2014 will remain in the memory as one of the most unique in Tuscany, characterized by a mild winter, heavy rainy, which favored an early budding followed by a dry spring which allowed a regular flowering. Summer was characterized by abundant rains, cloudy days that have not favored the ripening of the grapes, finally, like 2010, we chose to make only our Vermentino Colli e mare.

a

VINTAGE 2013

The cool winter 2012 was followed by a mild and rainy winter 2013, which caused a delay of about 15 days in the development of plants that will characterize the whole year. A cool spring was followed by a warm and sunny summer, which allowed a good growth of the grapes. The initial delay has proved beneficial because in August were reached temperatures around 35 degrees. The part of the terminal maturation has taken place in September a sunny month but fresh. The wines are fresh with delicate aromas, deep rich colors.

VINTAGE 2012

The 2012 was characterized by cold and rainy moments alterned with hot days. The winter was cold and dry which was followed by a rainy May. The summer was hot and sunny, favoring a regular maturation. A cool September gave us a wonderful mash of brilliant ruby color, fresh flavours with a good structure.

a

VINTAGE 2011

After a rainy 2010, we had a warm and dry 2011. Fortunately the spring and summer was good with a light rainy August. September was sunny with ideal conditions for harvesting.

a

VINTAGE 2010

2010 will go down in history as one of the wettest years in Versilia. The climatic conditions experienced in Versilia led us to decide not to produce Vis Vitae but only Colli e Mare.

a

VINTAGE 2009

The 2009 season was characterized by a winter and the beginning of a fresh and rainy spring. After a dry May, June was rainy but without consecuences on the vegetative growth and flowering. The summer was hot and, dry, with temperatures often above 35 °C, little excursion of temperature between night and day. The wines are powerful and structured.

a

VINTAGE 2008

2008 started with a warm winter that resulted in an early budding. The spring was rainy, favoring a slowdown in the growth of plants. The summer was hot with little rain, a cool September marked the end of the ripening of the grapes, making aromatic freshness and finesse.

a

VINTAGE 2007

A mild winter has marked the 2007 season which was followed by a spring with little rain. A rainy June was followed by a sunny and mild summer. A cool September allowed a perfect ripeness, giving us fresh and long-lived wines.

a

VINTAGE 2006

2006 was characterized by a cold and rainy winter and a warm spring, with a slight delay in flowering. A dry summer, not so hot, favored a good growth in clusters, which was followed by an excellent September which ensured a healthy grapes rich in aromas.

a

VINTAGE 2005

The 2005 vintage is the daughter of a mild winter which resulted in an early budding where a sunny April was followed which resulted in a slight advance even for flowering. The plants, after a cool and rainy May, occurred at the beginning of Summer with a great vigor and in perfect balance. July and August was sunny with temperatures in the norm favored an excellent development of the bunch, giving us balanced and structured screws.

a

VINTAGE 2004

After two very difficult years, finally we have 2004! An excellent year with a favorable climate that has characterized all seasons. A cool, rainy winter, a sunny spring favored a slow awakening of plants. The summer was mild with an August which set us moderate temperatures, which favored the maturation of the polyphenolic components of the grapes. The wines are fresh, rich, deep and complex with good structure and a large bouquet.

a

VINTAGE 2003

The year 2003 was diametrically opposed to the 2002: a sweltering heat with little rain. The autumn 2002 and winter 2003 recorded heavy rains that have enabled us to establish important water reserves, fundamental for the season that is being prepared. A cold winter has caused a slight delay in budding and flowering, while the fruit set occurred slightly ahead due to a May heat and little rain. The lack of rain (only 70 mm between May and September) and particularly high temperatures with highs of 35 degrees in August have given us very structured wines with notes of jam and ripe fruit.

a

VINTAGE 2002

The year 2002 can be divided into two phases: from January to August and from August to October. A cold winter has given way to a spring dominated by high heat which caused a long flowering. A warm summer has favored a good fruit set. Since early August abundant rains had delayed the harvest, giving us very fresh and fruity wines.
