The vintage

A year in which the cold month of May led to delays in cultivation operations, although we soon caught up thanks to a warmer and dryer spring, thus regularising the growth cycle. 

In these conditions, the cultivation project yielded good results. Agronomic interventions confirmed the goodness of the product, with wine test results confirming the excellence of this vintage.

Terrain Composition

Sandy clay, poor in humus and highly permeable. All these factors are favourable for aromas and preservation
