  • Seasonal Outcome The mild winter, with low rainfall, favored an early blossoming. Spring, cooler than usual and very rainy, caused a slowdown in the vegetative activity. The heat of the summer months lasted for a short period; the sporadic storms brought sudden drops in temperature, therefore the maceration took place with a slight delay. Nevertheless, the quality of the grapes was excellent, thanks to the poor, but prompt, rains of the first September decade, which significantly contributed to the ripeness of the grapes.

The color is a deep ruby red. The fresh, fruity and complex at first impression, with notes of cherry and plum. A full-bodied, well-balanced and dry wine, with sweet tannins and fresh acidity, typical of the grape. The aftertaste is long, with notes of fruit.
