After some winter rains and a few windy days, winter gives way to spring, which is usually intense and early, distinguished by high temperatures that, after the vines are planted, help the buds to swell quickly, developing homogeneous shoots rich in clusters, ready for flowering in a few weeks. The microclimate is always optimal, distinguished by the wind rising from the sea light and constant, intense sunshine without fluctuating temperatures, few rains wet the vineyards, lush and balanced, bringing the desired phenolic ripening to fruition. It promises to be a vintage of great depth, determined by the quality of the tannin, which gives a rich, concentrated wine but with hints of freshness, particularly in the Merlot. The Cabernet Sauvignon shows finesse and structure and the Cabernet Franc complexity and roundness.
