Oro del Cedro

“A wine which expresses my interpretation of French Sauternes wine, capturing all the flavor of a Tuscan sunset”

Faye

« The Unconventional »

This wine clearly expresses the desire and courage to stand out. Its unique character, combined with our ambition to find the best quality, characterizes its greatness.

Produced from Gewurztraminer grapes, picked from the old “Casabella” vines, located at the top of a hill 400m above sea level, which nurtures its growth and provides the differences in temperature and wind it requires.

L’Oro del Cedro has always been acclaimed by the specialized press for its quality and original style.

Climatic conditions
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.

Production
3350 bottles produced

Climatic conditions
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.

Production
1750 bottles produced

Climatic conditions
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.

Production
1500 bottles produced

Climatic conditions
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. Then, the warm and sunny summer allowed the grape varieties to ripen earlier for an optimal harvest and in particular a Sangiovese harvest of exceptional quality.
