2019 VINTAGE FEATURES

Unfortunately, climate trend is consolidating year after year:
also 2019 was as a hot vintage, maybe less aggressive than 2015 and 2017 thanks to some night rainfalls. Harvest started early in the second week of September, we picked up healthy and crunchy grapes, but the yield was low. However, the vine is a wonderful plant, with a great spirit of survival: Long life to the vine and the wine!
The wine has a broad nose: spices blending with wild berries, in an intriguing alternation of sensations. Strong mouth, with powerful tannins, but well integrated with structure. It is a ready to drink wine, but with good aging potential.
