SKU: LONFRES21

A near-perfect Hills vintage with excellent rainfall in spring and no summer showers dispersed by subsequent mild breezes. The winds prevented any disease pressure and the mild Spring provided good conditions for flowering early. Cooler temperatures prevailed throughout and as yield was above average, increased wire-lifting and leaf-plucking were implemented; exposing the fruit zone to enhanced ripening. From veraison through to harvest, the vineyard experienced below average, yet relatively dry temps, ensuring a very long ripening period resulting in exceptionally complex fruit flavour.

”37.5/35.5/16/11% nebbiolo/pinot nero/barbera/dolcetto. The inspiration is young, unwooded, fresh Italian wines. It's all about the fruit and the fruit's tannin, the latter providing backing to the former, exploding in a rush of red cherries, plums, anise, dried herbs, mandarin skin and the prettiest aromatic florals. So juicy, fleshy and fresh. Such purity of unoaked fruit flavour is a real treat.”
