Vintage 2008

Premature start to the season and average rainfall in March and April. May and June were characterised by heavier rainfall, which created some difficulties for the loss-sensitive varieties (Merlot, Sangiovese and Alicante). From 20 June to mid-October, a very dry summer with only one significant rainfall per month (on the 15th or 16th of each month it rained!). Temperatures were slightly above average. All the conditions were achieved so that the grapes ripened well and were very small, and very concentrated. In summary, 2008 was a year of great quality but with low yields.
