Vintage notes

Growing Season 2017: after an exceptionally dry winter and a spring frost that fortunately affected us only marginally, the summer was one of the hottest and driest on record.  Due to the extreme drought there was a significant amount of grapes lost to the wild animals, deer and wild boar.  The result was a small harvest, but of great quality thanks to the many years of organic soil management using compost and cover-crop that over time increase the amount of organic substance and the drought resistance of the vines.

Harvest period: 18th September – 27th October

Tasting Notes

Intense, deep ruby red color with subtle glimmers of garnet.  The wine shows a splendid, full nose with hints of blackberries and pleasant notes of tobacco and spice. In the mouth, the wine is soft with an elegant, fresh finish and a persistent, generous acidity in the aftertaste.  Full of mature tannins and fruitiness.
