Appellation: DOCG- Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita
The 2013 season has seen the weather tend to cool, especially in spring and autumn. The winter was marked by rain and was characterized by a climate that tends to be cooler and rainier than the usual. The good summer season has led to a lengthening of the vegetative phase and a delay in maturation of the grapes. These conditions have favored the maintenance of acidity above average, and aromatic characteristics oriented to fruity notes of absolute integrity.
