12 in stock
The 2016 vintage was characterized by a warm winter during which excellent reserves of ground water were accumulated in the soil during the rains of late February. The vines began their growth cycle slightly ahead of normal seasonal averages and were assisted by a sunny spring with normal temperatures and rainfall for the season. Summer was warm, but without excessive peaks of temperature. The ripening phase saw warm and sunny days followed by cool nights which favored the accumulation of aromatic substances and a proper balance between sugars and acidity. The harvest took place in late August and early September.
A light peony pink in color, the wine offers sweet and richly fruity aromas with notes of cherries and raspberries well integrated with herbaceous sensations which add liveliness. The palate is fresh and balanced with a fruity and persistent aftertaste.
