Weather Characteristics of Vintages:
Early spring and budding at the end of March. Early flowering, followed by optimal conditions for the development of berries until ripening at the end of July. The ripening was slightly slowed by the arid August, but the harvest began in late August. A rare example of a straight, determined vintage with no major stress. Nature is generous everywhere, so the vintage is recognizable in quality and quantity and in the lack of vessels. Harvesting of mid-early varieties in the middle and late varieties in late September. Finish of the harvest on October 4.
90 % of the juice stainless steel tank fermented, 10% fermented in new barrique barrel, four months of active batonage, filtrated before bottling.
Wine is smooth, rich in taste, fruity and creamy. Matured apple notes are combined with some orange skin. Long buttery finish.
Recommended with all spicy seafood, pastas and risottos, also well with white meat. To serve at 10 - 12 °C.
