The vintage

A year characterised by abundant and frequent rainfall, requiring intense phytosanitary monitoring with constant coverage. Given the humid conditions and selection on the vine, the resulting must has an excellent bouquet with all the promise of a good quality wine. Hence the decision to continue with the cultivation project, which has yielded good results in terms of the rebirth and reinvigoration of vine fields.

Terrain Composition

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