Time has formed the vines, giving them their unique shape, and more importantly, optimal balance in production. The perfect ingredients create a Riserva of great character and complexity, whose noble origins are represented by the property’s age-old cedar tree, whose name it bears.
The 2008 vintage was marked by heavy rain during the entire flowering period, which had an impact on the setting phase and thus slowed down the production of the vines. However, the hot, dry and long summer boosted the veraison phase. Finally, the ripening period of the grape varieties was optimal as the cool nights were beneficial for the development of the aromas and the intensity of the colours of the bunches, and the sunny days favoured the concentration of polyphenols in the berries.

In 2009, the budburst phase took place as expected. During the summer, temperatures regularly exceeded 35°C both during the day and at night. Then, in the middle of the ripening period, the sirocco winds from Africa accelerated the process, giving this vintage a fast and early harvest.

The flowering phase of the 2010 vintage was rather rainy which was an additional challenge for our winemakers. However, the summer was ideal for the development of the grapes, alternating between sunny days and some rain. This period allowed our grapes to reach an optimal stage of ripening for an ideal polyphenol concentration and aromatic intensity.
We particularly remember 2011 for its two-part August. The first 15 days were relatively cool with days not exceeding 30°C and cold nights. On the other hand, the second half of August was sunnier and more powerful, allowing the grape varieties, particularly Sangiovese, to develop healthy, mature bunches that were concentrated and rich in polyphenols.
The 2013 vintage was impacted by a harsh winter with alternating sub-zero temperatures and heavy snowfalls. The spring was cool and rainy. However, despite a cool summer overall compared to previous seasons, a few heat spikes boosted the Sangiovese veraison period. Finally, the fluctuations in daytime and night-time temperatures favoured a progressive ripening phase.

The winter of 2015 came later in our region, thus slowing down the vegetative awakening of the vines and the crying period by about ten days. Spring came at the right time, offering the vineyards a flowering period punctuated by sunny days and some rainfall. Finally, the long summer, with high temperatures exceeding 30°C and ideal climatic conditions, gave our grapes an ideal ripening.

The 2016 vintage is a great year that the winegrowers of our region still remember. In addition to having benefited from a late spring, it was mainly the abundant rainfall during the flowering period that contributed to the success of this season. The warm, sunny summer allowed the grape varieties to mature earlier, resulting in an optimal harvest, and in particular a Sangiovese crop of exceptional quality.
Nose: great complexity, wood, fruit and spices (cherry and balsamic)
Palate: excellent tannic density
Comments: good ageing potential, a great Rufina classic
