Sheet Vintage 2016
CLIMATE: The vintage developed clear, net and fragrant scents, a strong acidic structure which guarantees long ageing, and an intense and bright colour. After a rainy spring, the autumn was very hot during the day and cool at night, an excursion that made the grapes particularly rich in acidity, color and perfumes. The harvest was perfect, one of the most beautiful in recent years. In May and June the weather was cool, with good rainfall, while in summer the heat was balanced, not excessive
