  • Vintage Report

    • The 2022 vintage was very early with high temperatures, however slightly moderated by the proximity to the sea. No water stress thanks to the Spring rainfalls, with the exception of the young vines which were harvested earlier: on August 12th. The acidity levels decrease as early as the first days of August, as well as the tasting of the berries with phenolic ripeness, confirmed a great aromatic potential, and were all triggers to an early harvest.
