April: news from the Vineyards
Two “start of the season” news items
- In the vineyard at the growing season kick-off
A first examination seems to confirm a good, regular budbreak and a fruit set that seems to promise a crop, maybe even too abundant, but the season has a long way to go yet…
Meanwhile, we are still on track with regard to conversion to organic viticulture. This year we are trying out mechanical ground-working in the vine-rows; we’ve resurrected an old piece of equipment that had been forgotten for years, and although it requires a lot more effort we think it can have a favourable impact on the vineyards.
For the first time, in fact, we have been able to bottle a Groppello sourced exclusively from grapes grown by us from a vineyard we rented starting last year and from the new vineyard planted in 2013 and we are convinced that you can taste the difference in the glass.
In July it will be the turn of Rinè 2015, which has for some time now displayed consistency in quality and character, and of Nepomuceno 2012. With the latter we are still working towards a wine that is attractively austere and straightforward, avoiding the “trending sweet” taste of certain markets.
