harvest note

The 2017 vintage was characterized by a long summer with very little rain. Therefore, agronomic practices were adapted in the vineyards that allowed us to preserve humidity in the soil and freshness of the grapes. Exceptional work was done to oxygenate the roots: the leaves in front of the bunches are not removed to prevent risk of burns and delaying of the clusters thinning operations took place in late summer. The climate in the autumn was characterized by cool nights and warm days leading to perfect ripeness of the grapes one week early than the classic harvest time.

tasting note

Noble complex ethereal notes, wild fruit and spices .Taste is ample, aristocratic, remarkable fine tannins with long finish balanced full of flavor.

food pairing

This is a great wine for roasts, large game such as wild boar and venison and game birds such as pheasant, quail and partridge.
