Grapes for the red Poderi del Bello Ovile 2007 wine (particularly the Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo and Canaiolo
grapes) were in excellent condition at the harvest, though quantities were limited thanks to the weather and to a light pre-harvest thinning. Favorable weather conditions helped the delicate harvesting process. The fermentation process is over and we can forecast a quality level for the vintage this year similar to the excellent levels of 2005 and 2006.
Deep, almost impenetrable, ruby red, with violet colored edges. Fruits of the forest, especially
blueberries, on the nose, but liquorice and vanilla, too. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, but soft and
velvety at the same time. Excellent balance between tannins and acidity.
