Novita Rubicone Emilia Romagna Sangiovese 2019

A light bodied red with juicy redcurrant and cherry fruit
and a fresh finish.


Producer Note
The grapes for the Novità wines are sourced from Italy’s premium wine producing
regions, Emilia Romagna and Veneto (Pinot Grigio). Trebbiano and Sangiovese are the
archetypical mainstays of many a trattoria and offer delicious easy-drinking alternatives
to international varieties, while the Pinot Grigio offers excellent typicity. The Novità
collection is made by winemaker Enrico Salvatore of Cevico, one of Italy’s most
important wine-making organisations, who own over 6,700 hectares of vines, so
consistency of quality is guaranteed.


Vintage
The 2018/2019 winter was mild, with below-average rain and snow fall. Spring
temperatures were above average which resulted in premature budbreak. However,
April and May were abnormally rainy which then delayed fruit-set and increased
disease pressure in the vineyard. The dry and warm June and July helped to recover
some of the delay and contained the risk of mildew. August, September and the first
half of October were dry and unusually warm, allowing the grapes to reach excellent
phenological ripeness. The harvest started seven to 10 days later than in 2018, with a
yield that was reduced by 20% compared to 2018, however the quality in both red and
white wines is very good.


Vineyard
The Sangiovese vines find their ideal, natural habitat in the hilly districts of Romagna
and assume a strong, structured personality in the territory of Rimini. Spur and cordon
training methods are used on the vines, which are grown in clay and stony soils.


Winemaking
Traditional red wine vinification took place in temperature controlled stainless steel
tanks, preserving the freshness and the primary aromas. The grapes were then
macerated on their skins at 25°C for a period of seven days, extracting the rich colour
and flavours. The wine was then drawn off, softly pressed and went through malolactic
conversion, before resting in tank for five months prior to bottling.


Tasting Note
Ripe Sangiovese grapes deliver great flavours in the glass. Smooth with juicy redcurrant
and raspberry fruit leading to a fresh finish.
