The good weather conditions during the winter and spring gave their place to a summer defined by its mildly high temperatures and good levels of sunshine hours. The proper management of the vineyard during a good year with low yields resulted in the production of grapes and, by extension, of wines with an impressive character
Each variety is harvested and vinified separately, with a maceration period that may be as long as 12 weeks, depending on the year. Maturation for 18-24 months in new oak barrels. Only the very best barrels of each variety are used in the final blend. A well-aged wine.
