Harvest 2018: a very good vintage is expected

Skip to entry content

The harvest has just begun in our vineyards and it promises to be an excellent year: the climates and temperatures of the past months, characterized by a humid and rainy spring and a long hot summer have allowed a growing production of wine in terms of volume compared to last year and the realization of an excellent balance and finesse.We expect wines with a higher fragrance and lower alcohol content.

The moment of the harvest represents for us a real moment of sharing and union, which brings with it a great charm, a historical and anthropological value.

In some ways it represents the sublimation of months of work and effort in the fields. Our ancient vines allow us to fill our barrels with timeless excellence such as asprinio, falanghina, sciascinoso and primitivo.

As a tradition, our harvest will end between the end of October and the beginning of November - among the last on the peninsula - with the harvesting of Aglianico, a wine distinguished by its brilliant ruby color, almost garnet in the evolutionary phase with strong aromas of fruit such as cherry and black cherry.
