Scabrezza

Climate

The 2016 vintage was marked by a mild and slightly rainy climate. The spring season profited from intense rainfall which guaranteed very useful reserves of groundwater in the soil for the hot and dry summer weather which followed. The late August rains and the lower temperatures which followed brought the growth and development of the vines back into balance. The harvest took place during the third week of September, and the grapes showed an excellent acidity and much aromatic character.

Vinification

The grapes were picked by hand and, after being destemmed, were very softly pressed to extract the juice as delicately as possible and conserve to the maximum extent its aromatic components. The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks at temperatures between 57° and 61° Fahrenheit (15°-17° centigrade). The blending of the various lots, fermented separately, and the successive bottling took place during the month of January 2017.

Tasting Notes

A straw yellow in color, the wine offers delicate aromas with notes of apples, orange flowers, and acacia flowers as well. The flavors are both supple and tasty with important mineral sensations on its fresh and sustained finish and aftertaste.

Scabrezza 2016

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.
