The vineyard was twice hailed during July, and has produced only half a normal crop in 2018. Fortunately the weather was dry after the July storms, so affected grapes shrivelled, and could be removed on the sorting table. The wine has purple-ruby colour of medium depth, aromas being open, spicy, fresh and floral. Palate shows admirable roundness, with fleshy texture, rich tannins which are well rounded, and charming, soft aftertaste (for drinking 2023- 2030+).
