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

 

Climatic conditions in Bolgheri were quite well-balanced. Apart from a few cold nights at the end of March when the temperature dropped below freezing, the rest of spring was beautiful and sunny with some rain at the right moments to ensure proper vegetative growth with uniform flowering and fruit set. There were very few rainy days in June, except for some rainfall during the first week which prevented the vines from experiencing water stress, something that should be avoided during this stage of ripening. Towards the end of August, summer temperatures gradually began to drop after some rainfall, making it possible to begin the harvest. September was sunny and warm with a wide range of temperatures, typical for the area, for the rest of the harvest.
