Challenging but promising!
The 2020 wine-growing season started with a warm spring that caused an early flowering (late May).
Except from a hot spell at the end of July, the summer was rather average. The second half of August, especially the last weekend in August, was characterized by rainfalls. However, to ensure the phenolic maturity of all grapes, we did several runs of harvest to guarantee the phenolic maturity of all grapes.
During the main harvest in September, we benefitted from high temperature fluctuations between day and night, which had a positive impact on the development of aroma of various grape varieties.
The yields during the 2020 harvest were low due to rigorous yield regulations and minor grape weights. This had a very positive effect on the ripeness and quality of the grapes.
The white wines in the CLASSICI range show good qualities. The higher quality levels (FLORA) show a lot of freshness and juiciness. The grape varieties Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer deserve special mention.
When it comes to red wines, the Pinot Noir grape variety impresses in all quality segments with its strong, dark red fruit and good structure.
The positive surprise was Moscato Rosa. Due to an extreme concentration on the vine, we were able to harvest at an unbelievable early date (end of September) with outstanding quality (34 ° Babo).
