Tasting Notes

COLOUR: Intense ruby red, bright and clear.

AROMAS: Hints of fresh fruits like raspberry with spicy elements of thyme and indian spices.

TASTE: showing aromas, harmoniously sripe tannins, spicy finish. During the first week of April vines have sprouted and they kept growing thanks to the abundant water supply from 2014 and 2015 winter rainfall. The weather was then dry and sunny, at the beginning of August some rainy days helped the vines and the temperature dropped allowing the plants to make the photosynthesis in the best conditions and to obtain the perfect ripeness.

Tasting Notes

COLOUR: Intense ruby red color, with good brilliance and clarity.

AROMAS: The impact on the nose is good where fruity notes of ripe fruit such as blackberries and blueberries are well integrated with tertiary elements due to aging.

TASTE: Ripe fruits, precise tannins, pleasantly fresh finish.

VINTAGE 2017 CLIMATE TREND: The 2017 season was characterized by a rather mild winter with temperatures slightly above average. The summer and spring periods were characterized by high temperatures and low rainfall. This has resulted in a contained production charge but our loose and deep soils have however allowed a good vegetative growth with consequent excellent maturation phase. The grapes arrived at the time of the harvest healthy, intact and perfectly ripe.
