Vintage 2021
The unique microclimate of the Tuscan coast!

The year 2021 was characterised by a cold and wet winter, with temperatures as low as -3 °C in February. March was dry with above-average maximum temperatures, which accelerated sprouting. Spring, on the other hand, was cool and rainy with a frost recorded on 8th April. Thanks to the arrival of an anticyclone at the end of May, the weather remained dry and stable until the end of August. These climatic conditions allowed the grapes to reach full ripeness, maintaining good acidity and excellent aromatic character.
