Sheet vintage 2018 BIO

CLIMATE : The 2018 vintage in Camigliano was characterized by a spring with precipitations higher than normal (which helped to rebalance the water reserves of the land, after last year's drought). This condition, in consideration of the biological regime, has engaged us considerably both from mechanical operations (weed containment on the ground) and vegetation management. The phenological phases (budding, flowering and setting) had a fairly regular course, producing therefore a good production, with a much higher bunch weight than last year. During the harvest period the weather conditions were very good and the grape harvest returned to a more traditional timing. The products, as soon as the racking is completed, result in a very intense color shade, of sustained gradations, but with high acidity values.
