Cassiopea

Toscana Rosato IGT

Cabernet Franc 70%, Merlot 30%

 

Cassiopea revives the tradition of great rosés from this area, which are well-known for their extraordinary savoury hints and freshness. It has the colour and intensity of Bolgheri’s summer sunsets and bears the name of the constellation that lights up the skies above the estate of Poggio al Tesoro.

Climate Trend

 

The winter of 2008/2009 was harsh and rainy. The rainfall accumulation meant there were sufficient water reserves for the summer. A hot spring without excessive temperature changes ensured uniform and regular budding, an important foundation for the entire vegetative phase. A very hot summer with little rainfall allowed the grapes to ripen in perfect health and quality.
