Small interview with the Poggio del Moro winery.
“2018? How was it?
For Poggio del Moro it has been a year full of satisfactions.
A year that has brought us dowry results, international awards, distinguished guests and, above all, many quality products.
Like our wine, of course, that does not stop giving us joy: during this year we have witnessed an increasing demand from users who are experts in the sector and not, all curious and fascinated by its unique characteristics.
We have received many visits within our Boutique Winery: guided tours with our experts, targeted tastings, moments of authentic well-being and relaxation … who came to visit the Estate and the Cellar was “pampered” to the smallest detail, wrapped from the sense of beauty expressed by a landscape without comparison and the feeling of comfort and luxury that emerges from our rooms.
It was a year of intense work, 2018. Of careful and diligent preparation, of scrupulous selection of the best grapes by hand, during the harvest, and of rest of the wines in our Cellar, a unique in Tuscany for its ability to conjugate the strength of tradition and high technology.
A 2018, the one that goes in the archives, quite unique also from the climatic point of view. At first, here is a cold winter followed by an unusually unstable spring with alternating hot days and returns of cold and rain.
Then spring, during which the conditions of humidity were favorable to the development of fungal diseases that in our company, thanks to the particular windy conditions and vegetative balance, did not create problems.
Summer, on the other hand, was characterized by a start with cool temperatures and good rainfall, followed by a very prolonged period of heat and with little rainfall. Finally, a dry September allowed our grapes to ripen slowly and perfectly, while preserving a fruity freshness that is the main feature of this vintage.
It was also a year of prizes: the list of national and international awards for our wines is getting longer every day. Prestigious awards, come from juries formed by the leading experts in the field, which fill us with pride. A work also embellished by prestigious invitations on scenarios of the highest level: we did taste our wines – among many – at the Italian Embassy in Vienna, at an important Rotary Club and, icing on the cake, the great tenor Andrea Bocelli.
Un anno di fatica e di ricompense, dunque. Ma non intendiamo fermarci sul più bello: dopo un decennio di vita, Poggio del Moro rappresenta sempre più una realtà consolidata, ma dal potenziale ancora enorme, nel meraviglioso mondo del vino. La strada per il 2019 è già tracciata: continuate a percorrerla insieme a noi!
