Area: Umbria

Appelation: Rosso Italia

Composition: 34% Sangiovese, 33% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes: We focused on the expression of a young red with explosive and succulent aromas. The wine has a magnificent, intense and deep ruby red color, important and solid in its organoleptic ensemble. Rich in polyphenolics, but also with a balanced freshness and acidity, this wine is versatile, innovative and immediately drinkable. Very flexible for food combinations, to be enjoyed in the clear fragrance of its aromas and in the expression of its character.

Vintage 2018: The 2018 vintage began with rather normal temperatures and precipitation, promoting budbreak that was in line with the historical average of the region. Spring, and in particular the month of May, was characterized by frequent rainfall and temperatures slightly below average. The summer months were generally hot and dry, without noticeable spikes, providing optimal ripening conditions for the Merlot, Cabernet & Sangiovese grapes that comprise Vitiano. A windy and cooler September insured healthy & phenolically-mature clusters were obtained during harvest.
