Vintage 2009 ∗∗∗∗∗

The optimal conditions for the growth of vegetation presaged an extraordinary vintage. After the cool winter rich in precipitation, there followed an extremely mild and warm spring which helped give the vegetation a boost – by April, the quickly sprouting shoots and a premature blossoming already indicated that harvesting could begin early. The summer months, too, were characterized by a dry climate and average temperatures.

White wines

The white wines are impressive, offering mature fruity aromas, a full body, and balanced, fresh tannins.

Red wines

The red wines – which were allowed to hang on the vine for a prolonged time and enjoy a lot of autumn sun – display an amazingly intensive color, considerable density, and a high-quality tannin structure.
