The 2013 vintage began with abundant rainfall in both winter and spring – useful for a good summer water reserve – followed by a mild and cool summer. Temperatures rose at the end of July and the sudden change in temperature between day and night allowed for uniform ripening. Mild days with pleasant daytime temperatures allowed us to harvest in September, without the bunches becoming overripe. Careful management of the vineyard allowed us to keep the health and quality of the grapes and vines intact. To maintain a vegetative-productive qualitative balance, a selection of the bunches was thinned out.
