A hot summer with good diurnal temperature variation in September were the ingredients for an excellent vintage.
A nose of almonds and raspberry compote – so appealing! Just a touch of cognac in there too. Quite a dry style, measured and balanced but with good bite. A middle way between hedonism and intellectualism. Really delicious albeit not yet giving its full measure of pleasure; it needs another 10 years. — MW Nick Jackson
These wines are balanced, classically proportioned, showing grace, equanimity and poise. Usually they show more vibrancy than the gentle wines, but less flamboyance than the exuberant wines. These are closest to the Bertani house style.
