Information for vintage wine

Through maturation the wine obtains darker shades, enriches its aromatic complexion and emerges its savory richness, creating a balanced and complex ensemble. 

 

The bottles need to be conserved in a horizontal position, in a dark and cool place with as stable as possible temperature and humidity conditions. It is advised to decant all old vintage wines for approximately 30 minutes before drinking.

The factors

The variety, the differentiation of the climatic conditions each year, the vinification style, the ageing in oak barrels at the appropriate temperature and humidity levels and the proper conservation in the bottle are factors that determine the ability of a wine to mature.
