Vendemmia 2017 Cantina Di Giovanna

by Di Giovanna

This vintage in Sicily will at the end be noted for it’s hot temperatures and rich wines although until mid- July it seemed a quite cool vintage, although dry;  boasting low yields and healthy grapes.  Late July arrived the heat wave that continued through August, without a drop of rain.  Harvest began around 3 weeks earlier for most and was noted for quite low yields in comparison to the 2015 and 2016 vintages.   Look for richness and lots of flavor with 2017 wines from Sicily, what you expect anyway from the island of sun!
