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 2013 vintage began with abundant rainfall in both winter and spring – useful for a good summer water reserve – followed by a mild and cool summer. Temperatures rose at the end of July and the sudden change in temperature between day and night allowed for uniform ripening. Mild days with pleasant daytime temperatures allowed us to harvest in September, without the bunches becoming overripe. Careful management of the vineyard allowed us to keep the health and quality of the grapes and vines intact. To maintain a vegetative-productive qualitative balance, a selection of the bunches was thinned out.
