Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
It was a regular vintage, temperatures in the normal range, there were right rains during the spring-summer phase, at right intervals, every 15 days rainfall of 30-40mm, we had sunny weeks with temperatures in the normal range on 25gr daytime and 18gr nighttime, this allowed accumulation of important sugars. We had a beautiful September, albeit with some humidity, but very sunny with very little rain in Maremma. The Cabernet of this vintage expresses excellent colors and great structural concentrations. The 2018 vintage is of extreme quality: very balanced wines with good freshness and beautiful concentration.
