Montefalco, 2014 vintage | See Montefalco DOC.
2014 | Rating *** (three). Growing season Warmish and wet winter. Early budburst (10-15 days ahead of normal). Cool and wet spring, too. Lower than average rainfall and summer temperatures. Cool and rainy July, August as average. After that, up until the middle of October, higher temperatures partially made up for the delayed ripening. A good year for white grapes. Lack of ripeness for the late ripening Sangrantino, which had thinner than usual grape skins. ‘Damp summer. Fine autumn,’ (Stephen Brook, 2016).
