2013 • Notebook

After an extremely rainy and cool winter, a late but homogeneous bud break, the spring did not keep its promises, with a winter-like month of May that made the growth slow and difficult. Despite the warm and sunny summer, stormy rains prevented us to acheive a great vintage. The grape harvest proved to be complex, with a careful sorting process to eliminate the immature and damaged berries. The 2013 vintage remains an interesting vintage.
