  • Vintage Report

    • From a climatic point of view, 2020 was characterized by a winter that recorded temperatures in line with those of the period, followed by a sunny and dry spring, and then by a mild summer with periodical rainfall. The vine’s phenological phases therefore progressed regularly. The vines presented healthy bunches that have not been negativity affected by excessive sun exposure or periods of dehydration. The temperature range that characterized the summer weeks has resulted in good levels of acidity, essential for obtaining sparkling wines with the right notes in terms of freshness. The 2020 harvest will probably be defined by accentuated peculiarities in taste that differ between the two extremes – the northwest and southeast of the appellation – a phenomenon that typically occurs in less hot years.

    Apple and fresh lime on the nose with chalky mineral that turns to nice fresh-cream flavor on the palate. Tight and dry with a relaxed fizz. Pleasant, lime-cream finish.
