Vintage

A contrasting winter gave way to a spring that was both mild and rainy. The arrival of summer definitely confirms the notion of contrast that characterizes this meteorological year. The exceptional sunshine and heat of July and August allowed to dry the soils and to create the hydric stress favorable to the quality. The beautiful Indian summer, completes the ripening of the berries and enhances the quality of the vintage.

Tasting notes

Dark ruby. Complex, dense and expressive bouquet, with notes of blackcurrant, blackberry and a hint of pepper. Delicious and creamy attack accompanied by notes of blackcurrant, cocoa and a hint of clove. The tannins are dense, powerful and enveloping. This balance gives the wine a very silky, delicate side, with great freshness.
