Winemaking Note

Wet and challenging conditions led up to the end of spring before a remarkably dry summer. Formidable sunshine and a sustained wind cleansed the Vineyards before harvest began an exceptionally long 120 days after flowering. The wines shows a subtle balance between fruit, crispness, and finesse of the tannins providing the indication of a keeping vintage. The aromatic profiles are complex, powerful, without a hint of over ripeness. Less imposing than in 2005, but amply sufficient, the most striking feature of 2007 is the purity of perfect fruit.
