Balifico IGT 2012 – Toscana – Red
Castello di Volpaia
2012 summer was one of the hottest and droughtest season we ever had in Volpaia and may be in the whole Tuscany. Temperatures were very often over the average temperatures of the season and rains that were copious in spring suddenly disappeared for the all season causing a hydro-stress to the plants. Rainfall of the first days of September, followed by a period of good weather permitted a good trend of ripeness. Yields were very low.
