Red White Rose

Wine Concept

Fresh and fruity wine, obtained from blending a wide range of wines to guarantee a consistent quality.

Agriculture

Spring had lower temperatures and higher humidity than in previous years – ideal climatic conditions for fungal diseases in the vines, implying increased care in the vines to avoid mildew attacks. The cooler temperatures at this time of year provided a longer period of vegetative growth and, despite the heat felt since July, the beginning of the harvesting took place about 10 days later than usual. Warm temperatures continued throughout the harvest period, but the grapes arrived with excellent quality, with moderate sugar levels and acidity a little lower than the average of previous years.
