A Cru born in 1974 and produced only in the best years with Sangiovese grapes from the homonymous vineyard 400m above sea level. An intense wine with grand aromas and a long, noble persistence, Montesodi has always been considered the best expression of Sangiovese del Castello Nipozzano. Vintage Report In 2015, the ripening of the grapes was excellent thanks to the long summer, the high temperatures and the favourable climate. Winter made an appearance only in the second week of February, slowing down the plants’ awakening by about ten days. Spring began in earnest on March 21. The flowering phase was favoured by the alternating sunny and mild days, and lower than average rainfall when compared to the previous five years. Summer will be remembered as one of the warmest and sunniest of the past decade. July, in particular, was noteworthy for reaching temperatures above 30°C with very little rainfall. The beneficial rains of the first week of August once again modified the season’s rhythm, leading to a Sangiovese being harvested before the last rainfall of the beginning of October.
