Freshness, minerality and elegant texture are the character and the typicity of this vintage. Harmonious and particularly qualitative thanks to good weather conditions: a humid winter and dry spring combined with a warm to hot end of summer resulted in very healthy sanitary conditions in the vineyard. The maturation was slow but constant up to harvest time.
