vintage notesThe perfect climate, an excellent vintage in terms of quality and quantity. A rainy spring gives the vines the perfect amount of water to face the summer and its high temperatures without being in stress. Some rainfalls arrived, just in time the end of July and August. In September a good temperature range between day and night, that reached extremely elegant scents. A great vintage to remember.
