.The 2019 vintage was truly exceptional, thanks to the favorable climatic conditions that allowed us to harvest grapes from each region, variety, and soil type at the optimal time. We dedicated a significant amount of time to tasting grapes and determining the perfect moment for harvest, ensuring that the grapes displayed the ideal balance to showcase the purity of the place. We were fortunate to have avoided spring frosts, with only a couple of nights experiencing isolated frosts in low-lying, cold areas where the temperatures dipped just below 0°C without causing any damage. Spring was generally humid, with high dew points, but not necessarily rainy. There were no autumn frosts in our vineyards until the end of April. Overall, 2018-2019 was a cool and dry season, more similar to 2016 than to 2017. We experienced cool temperatures for a full week in January and then consistently moderate temperatures below average. The same pattern continued through February and March, with the added benefit of high luminosity. These climatic conditions resulted in wines with good natural acidity, tannins with good structure, and excellent fruit without over-ripening.
