Vintage 2013

The flowering in the spring 2013 was very late, and the harvest will also be late, despite a hot summer. The harvest started in late September and it seemed to be a top-notch vintage, in the style of 2008. But then the rains came, and we can look forward to wines with moderate alcohol content, firm acidity and variable quality.
