WINE DESCRIPTION

The manual harvest is followed by a slow and progressive pressing that allows the extraction of the richest juice. Static decantation for a dozen hours allows to clarify the must which is then moved to the barrels to carry out the alcoholic fermentation. Each parcel of vineyard is pressed, vinified and aged separately to allow the most complete expression of their terroir. Careful monitoring is performed to obtain the richness, complexity and balance function of each vintage. The wines are aged in new oak barrels for 33% and the remaining second passage barrels. The barrels are assembled before bottling after aging from 15 to 18 months. The cellar clerk carries out a careful monitoring of each barrel in order to obtain richness, complexity and balance based on the characteristics of each vintage.

CLIMATE

The 2018 harvest surprised both for its abundant quantity and for its exceptional quality. Winter 2017-18 was moderately cold with temperatures sometimes below freezing in the morning but rapidly positive in the afternoon. These cool temperatures are accompanied by high humidity that regularly covers the vines with a beautiful white coat. March is also a bit cold while in the first days of April the temperatures rise. Development is rapid and rainfall is abundant in May and especially in June. At the beginning of June, flowering occurs rapidly in drought conditions very favorable to the development of the bunches. The aquifers are at their maximum and the heat of the day does not allow the humidity to settle, which allows the grapes to develop in exceptionally favorable conditions. At the end of June it is already very hot and the temperatures between 26 June and the end of August will very often be well above the seasonal norms with highs exceeding 30 ° almost daily, interrupted only by a good rain on the 13 August arriving. to refresh the grounds.
