“That’s the vintage, baby! And there’s nothing you can do about it.”

negroamaro-vintage-2016“That’s the vintage, baby. The vintage! And there’s nothing you can do about it,” wrote Gianni late last week on his Facebook, quoting the famous line uttered by Humphrey Bogart in “Deadline.”

“I like the whites, which are stabilizing after fermentation. The Primitivo is excellent. The rosé from Negroamaro has just been racked. And reds from Negroamaro are going to be a gamble.”

“But today, after along day of working in the vineyards, I can’t stop thinking about how hot it was among the vines, my shoed covered in mud, and Negroamaro bunches that were battling off the botrytits.”

“And without a doubt, many of them are winning!”
