Vineyard altitude
450 m

Terroir
South facing vineyard at 450 metres. Sandy loam and volcanic soil mix, with marl veins.

Weather
A wet and mild winter and spring led to a significant increase of vegetative growth, compared to previous years. The summer was hot and very dry, but thanks to the wet spring, the plants did not suffer the drought. In September night temperatures at our altitude dropped considerably, giving the wine a great freshness and sharp aromas. We harvested at the beginning of October.
