Low rainfall and cold temperatures defined the beginning of the 2018 growing season. While the sunny mild spring was favorable, summer brought
long periods of warm days, with uninterrupted heatwaves above normal during August. Vine maturation peak was delayed by several weeks. A vintage with extreme
work during maturity control, a challenge to allow gradual increases in phenolic development without loss in acidity and freshness. The harvest began later, with the
benefit for higher altitude and older vineyards, better adapted to support climate variations during stressful years.
