Vintage: the 2014 vintage, despite being one of the most complex in the management of the vineyard, given the adverse weather conditions, has reserved pleasant surprises in the quality of the grapes vinified thanks to a favorable final season.
Early spring has favored an anticipated vegetative growth compared to the previous year, but the rainy summer (above average) has favored the fungus attacks compromising the quantity of grapes produced.
Both the month of September and that of October were undoubtedly positive from the climatic point of view, with a good temperature range, favoring the ripening of the grapes and the composition of its phenolic framework. For the red berry varieties a common factor is the high quantity of both anthocyanins and polyphenols with wines that are definitely colored and supported by a good acidity.

Bouquet: complex and wide with hints of violet and undergrowth.
Taste: full and velvety taste, very well balanced.
