1. Contrada Rampante 2016 Tasca D'Almerita

Contrada Rampante 2016

€ 50.00

Rampante is located at an average elevation of 740 meters a.s.l., between Solicchiata and Passopisciaro. It is an area of 4.6 hectares of vineyards, with large dry-stone wall terraces and a degrading morphology from South-East to North-East with an average slope of 4.7%. The territory where the vineyards of the Contrada Rampante are located is characterized by volcanic formations of different lithological characterization but belonging to the same time period (between 15 thousand and 4 thousand years).

In 2016, generally higher temperatures were recorded until the beginning of Spring. Late Spring and Summer were cooler than last year. In Autumn, at the end of the grape harvest, the temperature rose again. The 2016 rainfall returned to normal compared to the anomalies of 2015. It was generally lower but better distributed. We had good rains in June, before ripening, and scarce rains in the harvest period (August-September). In Spring, good water availability and temperature allowed an excellent development of the vine and an excellent beginning of ripening. The lowest temperatures from July onwards provided the ideal conditions for a slow and full ripening of the grapes. The white grapes had a good aroma and the red grapes a good structure. It was a vintage with abnormal climatic events due to unusual summer rains, but they did not hinder the health of the grapes and the quality of the wines that turned out to be concentrated and fragrant and with good acidity, an essential prerogative for a good drink and for aging capacity.
