New product

2012 was an unusually dry year. The vines, though, adapted to the hydric stress by growing shorter shoots with fewer leaves which, when combined with the small number of bunches, reduced the need for water. This, together with summer temperatures a few degrees cooler than average, allowed the vines to remain active, with the grapes achieving good levels of phenolic ripeness and retaining an aromatic profile of great freshness and intensity.
