DISCUSSING CASTIGLION DEL BOSCO RELEASES WITH MASSIMO FERRAGAMO AND CECILIA LEONESCHI

Massimo and Cecilia tell James about this year’s harvest and how the lack of water and a hailstorm affected Castiglion del Bosco’s vineyards, and James looks back on how weather conditions affected the other vintages. James was in Tuscany in the summer of 2017, and he said it was hot and dry. “You must have made some severe selections, because the wine is very fresh,” James said of the 2017. Cecilia concurs, saying technical aspects in the winery came into play, such as longer maturation in wood.
