Technical characteristic

Harvest

Despite the extremely high temperatures and dry weather, the harvest of 2015 was of exceptional quality, not only for the production of red but also for white wines. The grapes were in excellent health. The harvest was carried out exclusively at night (because of the lower temperatures) in order to preserve the full aromatic potential of grapes.
