March was warm but the following months April and May were very cold and rainy. Good weather started from June 10th and the end of the month and beginning of July were very warm and dry. Intense warm from mid-July to end of August, interspersed with some rain that were able to guarantee the right humidity to the soil. In September and mid-October the weather was good but always with some scattered rain. Blooming was delayed of 10 days as well as flowering. In June vines started a sudden and vigorous development. Veraison began with some delay and continued fairly slow. Harvest started a few days later compared to the previous years.

History of wine

The oldest Italian Wine appellation.
The first official document citing the Chianti wine is dated 1398. But it’s only in 1716 that the Granduke of Florence Cosimo III de’ Medici officialy sets the boundaries of the Chianti region where Chianti Classico wine is now produced (but not Chianti wine). Since 2007 Chianti Classico is made with up to 100% of Sangiovese and no more than 20% of other authorized red berry varieties of wich none should exceed 15% alone.
