Details of the harvest

From April until mid July temperatures were higher than average that favored the vegetative cycle of the vine. Occassional rainfalls in July helped to overcome the high seasonal temperatures. After the veraison the night temperatures dropped significantly meanwhile day temperatures were on average 25 c. This caused early maturity of the grapes and resulted in an early harvest and an extraordinary vintage.
