2018 weather summary and comparison in San Gimignano

Image
2018 temperature: 
Winter was cold with min temp below 0°C in November, December, February and March, while January was unusually warm. Low temp was able to kill olive trees disease, and this so important for us because we don't us any poison.
No frost in April, so our vines could start growing with no damages.
June and July were hot but luckily max temp not passed 39°C.



2018 rain:
Winter was rainy and so was May but summer was very dry until the first decade of August, when the rain increased berries size.
Total rain was 937mm
Comparing to 2017 total rain is 170%.

Comparison between the last 4 years.


mean temperature 
2018 was colder in winter but warmer in April but the low March temp allowed an almost standard budding time. Summer temp was very close to 2017 explaining the low production also if slightly increased because of the August rain.
min temperature 
Winter low temp (below 0°C) in 2017 and 2018 with high summer 2017 temp is the reason of the olives tree damages that reduced Tuscany…

It is finally ready our Chianti Colli Senesi 2016 that since now will have the name

San Nicola



As usual this wine represents our philosophy in life and in wine producing. Being natural as much as possible, respecting Earth, trees and preserving from damages.
Fruits are presents. This is the reason this wine is dedicated to San Nicola: the Saint that brings gifts to everyone who does good, and wine is the most precious gift we do.
In our estate there is the historic church dedicated to San Nicola, built in 998, that shows the devotion to the Saint, older than 10 centuries.

Starting from the vintage 2016 we want to remember our beloved

Nicolas



killed in Nice terror attack on 14 July 2016, in order that his name will be named all over the world, paired with our wine, bringing everyone his great joy of life that has always filled his Soul.


In memory of Nicolas

E' finalmente arrivato sul mercato il nostro Chianti Colli Senesi 2016 che d'ora in poi avrà il nome di

San Nicola

Come sempre rappresenta la nostra filosofia di vita e di produzione dell'uva e del vino, in maniera organicamente naturale, con il massimo rispetto per la terra, le piante e la loro conservazione.
E' proprio perchè i frutti della terra sono un dono che ci permettono di produrre un grande vino ogni anno, seguendo le stagioni e l'evoluzione del clima, che nasce la dedica a San Nicola: colui che porta i doni a coloro che fanno il bene ed il vino è il nostro dono più prezioso.
Infatti nella nostra azienda c'è la storica chiesa di San Nicola data 998, che testimonia lo stretto legame che dura da 10 secoli.

Ma in più con l'annata 2016 e da qui in poi, desideriamo ricordare il nostro caro

Nicolas
