The 2019 harvest was definitely a peculiar vintage, and undoubtedly one of the most engaging; yet the final result was excellent, if not great.
The bud break was at the end of March , beginning of April and luckily it was not affected by late frost . The spring was quite wet and cool and it was not easy because it forced us to sprays the vineyards several times. Anyway it did not affect the fruit set but delayed the regular development of the fruit .
The summer was warm and quite dry but we did not suffer for problem of draught because some rain interrupted the dry periods . Also the temperature even if warm was not really hot , except for a few days.
So at the end of August the ripening was quite late and someone was afraid the grapes were not able to reach the full ripeness.
At this point the good luck helped us because it started one of the best September ever. A long period of Sunny and warm days ( but not too hot and followed by the typical cool night of the period) allows the grapes the rich the full ripeness at the end of September beginning of October in perfect conditions . The crop was in the average as quantity and very satisfying as quality with grapes healthy and balanced , which allows us to produce wines rich of fresh fruit character, with nice acidity and good structure. It was a classical vintage of the past, when grapes mainly ripened in the month of September and the harvest was in October which produce wine with enough fresh fruit characters to be enjoyed as a young wine and enough structure together with a good acidity to be aged for a long period .
