The Climatic characteristics of the year
In the 2017 vintage the anomalous climatic trend has seen a dry and rigid winter, with little rainfall only in February. The frosts of the second half of April caused limited damage only to some areas of the plain and therefore spared our company located on a hill. The very hot and dry trend of the summer season has been well supported by the vine and has at the same time hindered the spread of humidity-loving diseases. Thanks to the sudden changes in temperature in the second decade of August and the September rains, the grapes arrived in the cellar perfectly ripe. The grapes matured earlier than the previous year and with optimal values both in sugar content and in total acidity. Who, like us, has carefully selected in the plant and waited a few more days to harvest, expects excellent results in the bottle.
A wine with a deep purple red color with purple reflections and the scent of ripe cherry, black currant and wood.
Savory, velvety and persistent taste.
Giulivo goes well with all the traditional Venetian dishes, especially meat. It is suggested to serve at a temperature of about 18 °.
