La Chertosa Wines

2014 Reserve Sangiovese

2014 Reserve Sangiovese
Limited Quantities Available

  • The 2014 harvest started off with a light frost, but then warmed up nicely.  Rains, the limited amount we had, stopped a bit on the early side, leaving the soils somewhat depleted of moisture.  Growth started off quickly and vines were shown to be fruitful.  Clusters were a bit on the larger side and heavier in weight.  This is true for all three varietals. 
  • At veraison there were a few minor heat waves that pushed up sugars.  We dropped about 30% of the overall crop, 25% at 80% veraison and another 5% after the second heat wave. 
  • Fruit loads came in rather high, about 25% higher than in 2013.  Sugar and acids came in well balanced and in their “normal” time frames, unlike 2015.  All fruit was picked at night, into ½ ton micro bins and arrived at the winery around 55F.
  • In the nose there is a lot of bright red fruit up front, notes of sour cherry, raspberries, dried floral and cherry tomatoes.  On the palate I also get more of the sour cherry, thyme cola nut and cedar.  Bright acidity with light tannins round out this wine.
