The soils on which the vineyards stand has varied and complex terrain features with a strong presence of limestone, feature areas rich in marl and pebbles as well as being partly clayey. The production facilities are located at an average altitude of between 80 and 400 metres above sea level, with a west/south-west exposure.
It was a rainy autumn with mild temperatures and a winter characterised by cold temperatures, often below 0°C. After a rather rainy spring that alternated with sunny days, the entire summer period was characterised by hot days with maximum temperatures around 32°C, with sporadic rainfall, especially at the beginning of July and mid-August. The entire harvest period was characterised by sunny days and temperatures within the norm.
Fermentation took place in two small open oak vats, each with a capacity of around 20 hectolitres.
Ageing took place in Slavonian oak barrels, of approximately the same capacity as the barrels.
