In 2018, the climatic year was marked by extreme climatological factors, which affected the vegetative cycle. If, on the one hand, autumn was dry, on the other, winter and spring were cold and rainy, promoting diseases and forcing more intense work in the vineyard. The summer was quite dry and hot causing scorching and loss of production. despite the scarcity of grapes caused by diseases and scald, the grapes that entered the cellar were very healthy, producing very fresh and high quality wines.


About 40% of the wine was aged for 8 months in French oak barrels of different capacities (20% 225 liters; 50% 500 liters; 30% 1000 liters). The stage took place on total lees with occasional bâtonnage. The remaining part of the wine was aged in stainless steel on fine lees.
