From Francesco Cirelli . . .
Here I am with a short update concerning vintage 2012 @AgricolaCirelli.
On sept the 26th I harvested the montepulciano grapes for making the cerasuolo amphora. Outside temperature 25 degrees C, nice and fresh with a morning fog which has been blown away too soon unfortunately.
|Going into the anfora (amphora)|
On sept 27th and 28th I harvested the grapes for the montepulciano amphora instead. Outside temperatures went up to 29 degrees (S#]t!) Again: healthy with a well balance; 20 babo grades as well and free-run must only.
|Free run juice|
During the night of the 27th the cerasuolo and the montepulciano musts have naturally started the fermentation;
great emotion this early morning to see the bubbles bubbling within the amphoras…" Un abbraccio, Francesco
Looks fun. Wish I could be there. A huge hug to Francesco and Michela from the West Coast!
