MONTEFALCO ROSSO D.O.C.G
A vintage where climate changes were sometimes extreme but, fortunately, concentrated in the early part of the year when the vineyard is still dormant.
Autumn/ Winter 2019 recorded generous rains, sufficing an abundant water supply and avoiding future stress to the vines.
January and February were mild and with little rainfall, while in late March and early April there were frosts due to the dramatic drop in the temperatures. Our vineyards have been protected from frost damage thanks to their setting on the highest part of the hills. Despite the cold, the germination was in the average. In June there was another sudden drop in temperatures accompanied by abundant rains. These effect the phenological phases slowing them by about 10 days. At the end of August, the high temperatures accompanied by sirocco winds speed up the ripening, bringing the harvest time back to normal. 2020 production was 15% less than the previous ones, while still ensuring the grapes’ sound.
