Merlot harvest for Mazzoni Toscana Rosso has begun!
Just feast your eyes on those beautiful Merlot grapes!
Last week, the winemakers at the Tenuta Il Poggione in Montalcino began harvesting the Merlot grapes for Mazzoni Toscana Rosso, the Mazzoni “Super Tuscan.”
The growing season was a little touch-and-go this year: the flowering and budding came late and then late spring rains pushed harvest back even further.
But a great summer made up for any previous concerns and winemaker Alessandro Bindocci is expecting one of his best vintages ever for the wines.
Stay tuned… We’ll be posting more on the harvest as it progresses.
