Vintage notes

The uncertain spring has led to a reduction of yields. The favorable temperatures in July and September favored a perfect maturation of the grapes. Lower yields but good quality.

Harvest period: 30th September – 11th October

Tasting Notes

The color is golden amber and brilliant. The aroma hints at honey, toasted almond and vanilla. Sweet and rich taste, balanced by vibrant acidity. Candied fruit, citrus, apricot and dried figs are the dominant notes. Very long persistent finish.
