Spring rains, within the seasonal average, provided the water reserve necessary for the months of July and August.

Ageing: 4 years, 3 of which in 25-50 and 75 hl oak casks from Slavonia and Allier followed by at least 12 months of refinement in bottles placed in storage at controlled temperature. Complex and elegant. With red fruity notes like cherry and sour cherry and spicy aromas.
