Vintage Conditions

The 2019 growing season was excellent with good winter rainfall followed by a long, dry ripening season without heatwaves. Dry soils, combined with warm temperatures allowed for perfect flowering and fruit set. Harvest occurred on the 20th of August – normal for this vineyard – with phenological ripeness with natural acidity.

Vineyard Selection

This fruit is sourced from the Kokinopilia region which is a subzone of the Robola PDO zone at an altitude of 600m above sea level. The average age of the vines is 25 years. The soil is gravelly limestone with good drainage. The vineyards are west facing and are planted on an incline.

Winemaking

Daily sampling and analysis of the Robola grapes ensured that they were picked at optimal ripeness. The grapes were hand harvested and chilled. They were then sorted, de-stemmed and pressed. Only the free run juice was fermented in stainless steel using EC1118 yeast. At Gentilini Winery we keep back a small amount of wine in oak barrels each year. This allows us to blend wines using the solera method to add complexity and depth to the finished wine. The 2019 Crossed Paths has 15% Robola from 2016, 2017 and 2018. After blending the wine sits on its fine lees for 4 months before bottling.

Description

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
