The wines from 2018 show greater freshness and acidity compared to previous vintages. After a few years characterized by drought, the 2018 vintage was wetter and with more moderate temperatures that slowed the ripening of the grapes. Resulting in a fruit of great purity and sanity that has allowed us to produce wines with more powerful aromas and good acidity.
