Solosole Pagus Camilla
Another vintage worth remembering, described by many as one of the earliest harvests in Bolgheri. After a rather mild winter, albeit affected by abundant rainfall, spring was marked by average rainfall and encouraged uniform growth of the shoots, which had already appeared in early March. Summer was breezy and dry with some refreshing rainfall at the beginning of September, which allowed the grapes to ripen in perfect health. During the pre-harvest period, high-temperature variations between day and night favoured phenolic and aromatic maturation, keeping the acidity high. The 2016 vintage promises intriguing wines with distinct varietal characteristics, with good structure and great ageing prospects.
