Recommended with all spicy seafood, pastas and risottos, also well with white meat.


Weather Characteristics of Vintages:

Early budding, which was halted by an extremely rainy and cold May. Hot June tried to make up for the backlog, which was re-created by the rainy and cold beginning of July. The optimum summer with just the right amount of daylight follows, ending with an extremely windy and arid month of August. A classic vintage with fluctuating weather, unpredictable all the way. The harvest begins in late August.
