harvest note

The 2017 vintage was characterized by a winter with low rainfall and a very hot summer. From February until the middle of April, temperatures were higher than average leading to an early blooming. In the second half of April, there was a sudden drop of temperature and as a result, caused frost related damages. Summer was extremely hot and dry, preventing vine diseases and allowing the grapes to remain healthy until the harvest. The harvest began on September 5th and was completed by September 26th. A relatively dry September allowed the harvest to be completed without interruption. The quality of grapes have produced a good aromatic intensity, structure and alcoholic content.

tasting note

A vivid, brilliant ruby red, the wine shows classic red fruit aromas. Though dry, the palate is fruity, round and exuberant with fine and persistent bubbles.

food pairing

Delicious with cured pork meats such as salami or mortadella or a variety of pasta dishes such as tortellini or lasagne.
