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

 

Autumn and the beginning of winter were marked by mild temperatures. The cold was never too harsh and only manifested between January and February. Rainfall, optimal in the springtime, was joined by sharp drops in temperature until the end of May, putting a strain on the vegetative recovery. The use of protective and stimulating elements to give the vine more energy, such as algae and natural substances, allowed us to confront this delicate period in the best possible way. Once the climatic conditions stabilised, flowering, fruit set, and veraison were satisfactory overall and well-balanced. They were helped by light rainfall, which arrived just at the moment when the vines began to show some water scarcity. August was characterised by cool nights and good daytime ventilation with some light rain showers. Temperatures rose again once the harvest began, but only for a few days: September gave us dry, breezy, and mild days, allowing us to consider 2019 one of the best vintages of the last 15 years.
