Budbreak occurred at the end of the first week of April. The growth in the early part of the year was very optimistic, leading to a generous bloom. We were very strict during the fruit-thinning phase before veraison, allowing the vines to progress without undue stress until harvest, which began in late September.
Mineral aromas are an ode to this ancient hillside riverbed. There is an uncharacteristic richness that unfolds and builds, before branching into delicate laterals that diffuse effortlessly. The weave of the wine is open-knit, while the finish is seamless, enlivened from within by a fine harmonic vibrance.
