South facing vineyard at 450 metres. Excellent exposure and constant ventilation. Sandy loam and volcanic soil mix, with marl veins.
A mild winter and a warm spring with little rainfall meant vines developed ahead of schedule, but with contained vigour. In late spring, rainfalls followed by sunny dry weather accelerated growth, whilst a dry and breezy August, complete with fresh nights, ensured perfect ripening of the grapes. We began harvesting at the end of September, in fantastic weather conditions.
