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 2014 vintage was characterised by a mild winter. Rainfall in January and February allowed for the accumulation of sufficient water reserves which were essential for spring budding. The first months of summer saw average temperatures and sunny days alternating with frequent thunderstorms, thus ensuring a slow and regular development. Significantly, a green harvest made it possible to regulate the vines’ load by eliminating the abundant excess bunches. From the end of July, the rains gave way to the highest temperatures in August and September, allowing for the complete and uniform ripening of the grapes, also thanks to careful management of the leaf wall. The wines of this vintage have elegance and finesse which are rare for this area. It is a vintage that might surprise us.
