South facing vineyard at 450 metres. Sandy loam and volcanic soil mix, with marl veins.
A perfect year in San Polino. Following a relatively wet winter, a cooler than usual spring delayed the onset of growth in the fields. Spring was followed by a beautiful summer, with scattered rainfalls and no temperature extremes. Significant temperature swings between night and day in late summer, favoured acidity and polyphenol development. A near constant breeze ensured grape health, and we bagan harvesting at the beginning of October, in great weather, the grapes having achieved an overall perfect maturation.
