Tasting note

“It is quite spicy, but the floral violet character of the variety is noticeable. 2017 was one of the earliest and lowest yielding vintages in recent times, and the wine has concentration and ripeness, but also balance and elegance. It is vibrant and has bright flavor along with great freshness. This will still improve with more time in bottle.”

Vintage 2017

Vintage is marked by average and maximum temperatures above values of the last 10 years, as well as very low rainfall regime. However is in these conditions when our vineyards and grapes have shown their incredible capacity not only to survive but also to give a small quantity with very high quality.
