Detailed information

Vintage

The year 2019, so special from a climatic point of view, once again offers us a great vintage. Indeed, thanks to the mild temperatures of February / March and the large water reserves generated by the heavy rains of autumn 2018, the vineyard perfectly resisted to the heat and drought during the summer. September, with its sunny days and cool nights, allowed grapes to develop harmoniously and achieve full maturity. The exceptional quality of this vintage is confirmed when tasting with velvety, balanced and very aromatic whites.
