The box contains 2 bottles for each vintage:

2009:The abundant rains and humidity that characterized the spring slowed the ripening process of the grapes and harvest forecast has been uncertain until June. The sun and the heat exploded in summer favoring the production of healthy and high quality grape rich in anthocyanins (red color). The vintage, however, was not the best for the quantity and this has contributed to the qualitative improvement of the wine obtained

2011:The climatic conditions of the last two weeks of August and the month of September have left their mark because of the heat and absence of rains. This has affected the yields and anticipated the maturation. Exceptional vintage

2012: Rain, snow and low temperatures in winter have guaranteed the presence of good water reserves in the vineyards. The sunny days and high temperatures from April onwards have favored the development of good vegetation and well-formed bunches. From a qualitative point of view there was a lack of parasitic attacks and the dryness did not damage the production as initially feared
