  • Vintage Report

    • The vintage 2020 started during a quite dry Spring with mild temperatures, which has created expectations for an early start of the growing season. This trend has fortunately been interrupted between the end of April and the beginning of May, a period characterized by abundant rain showers and cooler temperatures. Summer donated us mild temperatures, sunny days, and scattered rainfalls, but above all considerable temperature range. Thanks to the favorable climatic conditions, the 2020 wines strike you with incredible complexity and depth of the sip. Therefore, the 2020 harvest leaves us satisfied: beautiful grapes, good and healthy, have borne wines with intense perfumes and bright colors, nice alcoholic profiles kept up by acidity and freshness, but especially great complexity. All wines offer very perfumed bouquets with clear fruits and floral notes, as well as incredible freshness and finesse.
