Harvest Note
To be remembered as a great vintage, the phenological phases of the vine has grown in balance and supported by optimal meteorological indices. Spring was warm and balanced and followed by a long but never too stressful summer for the plants. These conditions prepared the optimal final stage of maturation, also relying on light rains in late August that completed an outstanding balance. It is thanks to the vegetative state of the vineyards that the grapes were able to fully express the potential of the territory.
Tasting Note
Intense ruby red in color, with garnet hints. On the nose, the wine expresses floral notes with delicate and intense violet notes. On the palate it's a harmonious and well-defined wine with elegant tannins and a sapid and mineral persistence.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with red meats and grilled mushrooms.
