ABOUT THIS VINTAGE
After a difficult few years, the region was blessed with an indian summer, making up for a cold and wet summer. Ideal weather conditions in September and early October made up for lost time, bringing late maturity and producing bold, powerful wines, comparable to those from some of the most remarkable years in recent history.
Vines are planted on clay-limestone soils, density varies throughout the property.
Harvest took place in October on selected plots, chosen for their yield and maturity.
