The 2018 vintage was atypical in many ways. This vintage required a constant presence, from the vineyards to the cellar. After a mild Winter, a wet and rainy Spring gave way to a beautiful Summer, favoring a steady ripening of the grapes.
September ushered in an Indian Summer that proved to be more than ideal for the harvest, with cool nights and warm & sunny days. The harvest lasted for a total of 8 weeks, under ideal climatic conditions.
The result is an elegant vintage with a particularly aromatic profile and a superbe balance.
