harvest note

After a winter with temperatures above the seasonal average, March witnessed a revival of the vegetation, followed by a wet spring with decent temperatures. In June, there was a strong start to summer with very high temperatures; these conditions lasted a little over a week, followed by alternate days of rain and sun. July and August were characterized by below average temperatures with many cloudy days and rain, though not excessive. In September the weather improved greatly, providing optimal conditions for a slow ripening and the development of perfumes. Harvesting took place from the 10th to 20th of October, when the grapes were healthy, showing good signs of their ripeness but a particularly low yield. Overall, the qualitative results, in a complicated year often hastily judged to be mediocre, are much better than expected.

tasting note

Cipressi Nizza is an ample, well-structured wine that possesses excellent harmony and freshness.

food pairing

This is a very pleasant wine, easy to match with many international dishes. It is especially good with pasta dishes with different sauces as well as poultry and red meats (beef and pork).
