harvest note

2018 harvest was cool and rainy in spring with a regular hot summer. Soil type is part clay, part Bolgheri conglomerate. Vine training is spurred cordon with plant density of 6,500 vines per hectare.  Fermentation took place for 14 to 21 days at 77 to 82 Fahrenheit.  60% percent of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in oak barrels, the remainder in stainless steel.  The wine was aged for 15 months in 75% new French oak barriques and the rest in one year old barrels.  The wine was further aged for 12 months in bottle before release. Overall, this vintage is very elegant, similar to 2010 with smoother tannins.
