Exceptional harvest at Il Greppo with a regular temperature. The spring was humid and the summer was hot and long with rainfalls at regular intervals. The Harvest began on September 10th with cold temperature and rainfalls at the end of the picking. Grapes were healthy, with thick skins and rich in colour. The resulting must was rich in sugar, extracts, and acidity with 3,4 pH. Vinification in red under controlled temperature, the wine was drawn off after 15 days. Uncork, remove a small amount of wine from the bottle and allow to aerate for at least 8 hours before serving.
