Vendemmia 2018Harvest 2018 ..... a good quality, almost unthinkable up to a month before ..... but not for everyone. In the end those who worked well and managed to defend the grapes during the season, especially from the oidium attacks, but above all controlling the quantity, thinning and leafing where necessary, brought excellent grapes into the cellar. We found the most positive aspects in the white grapes, cortese and sauvignon, characterized by the freshness that has been lacking a little in the last two years, accompanied by a noticeable maturation that has allowed an excellent balance and structure. 

So after the terrible year 2017, a breath of oxygen that allowed us to fill our wine cellar with excellent wine.

Gelicidio   Dicember 2017...after a hard year for grapevines

   caracterized by frost in spring, dry hot in summer
