Winemakers Note

VINTAGE NOTES An outstanding vintage characterized by a classic Mediterranean climate trend. The season began as a cold one, with little rainfall and temperatures that are slightly below average, which led to regular fruit set. The fairly hot summer presented significant diurnal temperature variation between day and night. These characteristics, combined with the lower temperatures and the light rain in early September, allowed for perfect ripening, as well as the development of pleasant freshness and exceptional phenolic maturity.
