Scabrezza

Climate

The 2015 vintage saw a cool and mild winter, which was followed by warm spring with well distributed rains during the months of April and May. The first summer months were characterized by rather warm temperatures and only occasional light rain, which instead arrived during the first half of August, balancing plant growth and assisting a regular development of the grape bunches. September was accompanied by minimum rainfall and cool weather. This led to an excellent ripening of the crop, one with a bracing acidity and fine aromatic intensity.

Vinification

The grapes were picked by hand and the bunches, after destemming, were given a soft pressing in order to extract the juice as delicately as possible. The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks at temperatures ranging from 57° to 61 ° Fahrenheit (14°-16° centigrade). The blending of the various lots, fermented separately, as well as the successive bottling, took place during the month of March.

Tasting Notes

The wine is a straw yellow in color. The aromas are delicate and deep and recall apples and acacia flowers. The palate shows an important mineral structure, softness, and a crisp aand savory finish and aftertaste.

Scabrezza 2015

The Wine

Scabrezza is made exclusively from Pinot Bianco grapes. A pleasant, tasty wine with delicate aromas. The label is a tribute to Dante with one of the verses he dedicated to Beatrice in the Divine Comedy. The name Scabrezza is a old term that was used to measure the flow of water in rivers and streams, such as water flow in ancient drainage channels, weirs and clapper bridges that still exist today on the property.

Tenuta Monteloro

Tenuta Monteloro

The Monteloro estate is located near Florence, just behind Fiesole on the foothills of the Apennine mountain range at an altitude of 500 meters (1640 feet) above sea level. The property extends over 600 hectares (1500 acres) with 94 planted hectares (232 acres). This is a unique area in Tuscany; an ideal terroir for producing white wines in particular Riesling and Pinot Bianco. The vineyards enjoy a year round cool climate on mineral rich soils. At one time, Monteloro was home to aristocratic Florentine families, such as Beatrice Portinari and Dante Alighieri, who spent summers in the countryside vacationing in their country manor homes. According to legend, this unique countryside of forests and narrow white country trails was the inspiration for Dante in his travels in the Divine Comedy. Fantastic mythological creatures possessing a triton’s body and dragon’s wings seem to pay their respects to the territory’s legacy and form the letter “M”, logo of the Monteloro estate.
