Tasting Notes

The colder than usual trends of the season influenced a quite long harvest, which began on September 11 and ended on October 7. The peeling interventions at the end of August and the sunny and warm days at the end of September have helped the ripening, ensuring the typical fruity and balsamic expression. The entry in the mouth is fresh and tasty, with a full and sweet tannic balance, the finish is composed and supported by its aromatic complexity.
