TYPE OF LAND

Partly clayey, partly Bolgheri conglomerate. The warmest and mostly sandy soils are dedicated to Syrah.

WEATHER CONDITIONS

Mild winter with average rainfall, spring was characterized by low temperatures compared to the average, with a slow start of budding and therefore postponed by about 7 days. Warm temperatures in late March / early April, then return to colder temperatures. Finally rain in mid-April and regular rains in May. No rain between late May and early October. The vines did not suffer water stress despite the drought thanks to the cool night temperatures and the rains that fell during the month of May.

HARVEST

We started the harvest with the Merlot harvest in the first week of September 2021, and finished with the last Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in the first week of October 2021.

VINIFICATION

The grapes were carefully selected on the vibrating belt in the cellar. Destemming and soft pressing; fermentation in steel vats at a controlled temperature, around 28 ° C, for a time ranging from 14 to 21 days.

AGING

40% of the volume is aged for at least 4 months in used French oak barriques, the remainder in steel.
