HARVEST: 2019 was a slightly dry year, we had a slightly rainy spring which significantly reduced production at the plant. The summer was mild and the normal ripening, thanks to the low production, but with very good acidity. We did the harvest at the end of August with very good maturation and a high freshness.

The wine is fruity, salty and very drinkable.
