2021 VINTAGE FEATURES

Very hard harvest, especially for the Albana variety: we lost 40% of crops due to dry weather conditions and floral abortion, its Achilles’ heel.  This happened especially in Fratta vineyard:  vines did not reach complete fruit set.
Unlike 2017, hot and dry vintage as well, in 2021 temperature inversion during the first week of September safeguarded phenolic ripening.
This wine is extremely pleasant, with balanced fruity and floral notes.
In the mouth, it reaches its peak, with fresh and vibrant entry, counterbalanced by mineral,  chalky flavour that most represent Bertinoro‘s terroir.
