The viticultural season at Feudo Maccari began slightly earlier than usual, the vineyards stimulated by significant spring temperatures began a harmonious and balanced budding, the result of precise pruning and attention to detail. Immediately after flowering, temperatures rose rapidly as early as May, propelling the vineyards into summer weather, which found relief from the water resources of the soils and the winds cooling the vineyards. The harvest began in late August without any particular anticipation of ripening. The grapes, the highest expression of quality, represent very well the varietal and terroir characteristics.
