Vinification
Spring came in with lower temperatures and higher humidity than in previous years, ideal climatic conditions for fungal diseases in the vines that entailed an increased care in the vines, to avoid mildew attacks. The cooler temperatures at this time of year provided a longer period of vegetative growth, and despite the heat felt from July on, the harvesting began about 10 days later than usual. Warm temperatures continued throughout the harvest period, but the grapes arrived with excellent quality, with moderate sugar levels and acidity slightly lower than the average of previous years
