Now that almost all of the grapes are in the cellar it’s possible to crow about a 2010 that in Black Rooster land seems to promise good things for vintners and consumers....
In any case, harvesting the grapes was fairly laborious for producers, who had to pick selectively and in various installments, choosing the grapes pretty much on the basis of the ripeness of individual vines.
While the weather wasn’t entirely even, the experience of Chianti Classico grape growers in any case made it possible to bring in another good year. There will be particular rewards for the most attentive vintners who, having carefully selected grapes in excellent health, were able to calmly wait until ripening was completed, taking advantage of the sunny end-of-summer days.
The 2010 to come. Right now not all the wine has reached the drawing off stage. However, initial impressions from technicians and insiders are of “surprising” results: fermentation proceeded without hitches and the wines emerging have intense colors and fragrances, with acidity levels high enough to predict a good aptitude for aging; alcohol content is high but not excessive, to the benefit of balanced wines leaving room for a wealth of aromas.
The 2010 Hong Kong Wine Fair has earned plaudits from both exhibitors and buyers. The most recent edition hosted almost 700 exhibitors from 30 countries & regions. Italy will be the Partner Country for the 2011 fair. Therefore we can probably expect even more italian companies being represented during the 2011 fair.
The fair was very well organised, the staff was assistant and quick. There was a lot of interest generated in general, so we have had a good flow of people. We also found out that a lot of prospective clients and general public knew about their wines, and were very curious to learn more.
All these have proved again how interesting and highly potential the Chinese market could be. Let's hope that in 2011 we will be coming back to exhibit some new vintages with our potential importers.
