Balance in an exceptional cycle
The 2021 vintage was characterized by a winter marked by high rainfall, which favored the vineyard's vegetative balance, developing homogeneously. The vineyard was worked with spontaneous and sown plant covers, which helped to control the vigor of the vines. Budbreak took place at the end of April without any climatic or sanitary incidents. The vines did not encounter any interference in the development and evolution of the buds, which resulted in very good yields that were balanced thanks to the thinning technique. The harvest was long due to occasional periods of rainfall; it began on September 22 and ended on October 14.

More than a hundred different plots, resulting from one of the first vineyard soil studies in the country, are worked separately thanks to precision viticulture. The different textures of limestone loams, clays and sandstones force the vines to make an effort to self-regulate and give the best of themselves.
