Very good quality but a rather cool year. Regular autumn and winter with early arrival of spring. The summer characterised by cooler temperatures and occasional rainfall. The harvest took place regularly and the grapes were able to spend more time on the vine. Excellent freshness and great aromaticity of the wines of this vintage.
13-day maceration with intense pumping over. Devatting and immediate start of malolactic fermentation. 75 hectoliter stainless steel vats were used.
