Growing Season

This was an atypical year, perhaps unlike any ever registered. Winter was fairly mild and warm. The frost that arrived on 18‐20 April, the drought, the extreme heat that lasted for more than two months, all scorched the earth and the grapevines. For this reason, the leaf removal typically carried out before grape harvest was avoided; instead, the grapevines were left “untidy”, only slightly trimmed, to protect the fruit from the rays of the sun. At the end of August and the first ten days of September, rains came and the temperatures dropped drastically, all the way to the seasonal average.

Tasting Notes

Straw yellow in color. Elegant to the nose, with hints of grapefruit and plums. Fresh savory taste. The excellent acidity makes this wine long, complex with a harmonious finish and enveloping aftertaste.
