Vintage characteristics
The spring of 2016 was cool with average temperatures of around 10°C and low humidity. Precipitation reached almost 20 mm. Budding was homogenous with very good fruition. Summer weather was within normal parameters and resulted in a very good selection of grape clusters. February was more humid than usual with 80 mm of precipitation and very good average temperatures of around 20°C. Typical temperatures range between 12 and 15°C, so CLA defoliated more extensively on the vineyard’s west side to improve insolation and ventilation. The harvest was of very good quality with a fresher acidity and a high concentration of polyphenols,
ensuring wines with good volume and great delicacy
