Across Jahant Road from our winery in the heart of the Lodi Appellation sits our Sangiovese vineyard. It thrives in our dry region allowing the winegrapes to take their time to develop, budding early and ripening slowly. This lengthy growing season creates richness and intense flavors.
The 2017 growing season marked the end of the drought with heavy winter rainfall that continued into the spring. Due to the rain, timely vineyard practices were crucial and we adapted our cultural techniques to maintain vine balance. Heat spikes during late August to mid-September required close attention to irrigation to ensure vine health. With the given weather, our winegrapes developed the required sugars, but full flavor maturation delayed our harvest. The wait was worth it and the outcome was a vintage that boasts bright and fresh whites with ideal levels of acidity and red wines that are showing good intensity and concentration.
