Hecho a Mano Sangiovese 2013

August 8, 2013

39 pounds.  Set to ferment in a small container.  The very disappointing small harvest is due - at least in part - to some corrections Stanley made in the early spring in the pruning process.  Not only were there fewer grape bunches, but the bunches were smaller and the individual grapes were smaller than in the past.  Low Ph is too low and has been corrected by adding just less than two quarts of high acid grapes.

Brix 26
Ph 4.12
Acid 6.0

There was insufficient juice to take any off for fermenting as white wine.  Sigh . . . . .
