First vintage ever produced was 2020.
This vintage is characterized by a warm winter with welldistributed precipitation from October 2019 to February 2020. In April, temperatures dropped to - 4 ° C (25F) at night, leading to two spring frosts that caused slight damage in the youngest and lowest-lying vineyards. Significant temperature fluctuations and frequent rainfall required meticulous work to tackle fungal diseases in the spring. Early summer saw scarce winds (unusual for Bolgheri) and the weather remained warm and consistent throughout the summer, with no heat waves until mid-September. The harvest was slowed by several rains. The harvest of the red varieties began with Merlot on September 5. The grapes were healthy and fully ripe, with higher-than-average sugar content and crisp, fine skins.
