Exceptional vintage. Spring was cold and wet. June, July and August were moderate hot, dry, with little rain falls at intervals. September cold and dry. The harvest started on September 18th and was cold and dry. Grapes were clean and mature with thick skins rich in colour. The must resulted rich in sugar, extract and acidity. We qualified both Brunello type ´Annata´ and ´Riserva´. Only grapes that come from the Estate vineyards are vinified.
