A winter with a very cold final: snow in February and lows down to -7°C. The onset of spring was still cold and damp; as a consequence, budbreak started approximately ten days later than usual. From mid-April on, the temperatures rose unusually high, up to 29°C, thus favoring abundant flower pollination. From May on, rainy weather prevailed again. Only after July 15th did summer really set in. Temperatures peaking well above average continued until August 25th, with almost torrid heat in August. The rains that saved the vintage appeared during the last ten days of the month, quenching the vine’s water stress. Harvesting began unhurriedly on August 13th and ended during the first ten days of September. Throughout the whole picking period, the grapes were beautiful, healthy and perfectly ripe. Characterized by very generous natural conditions and vigor, managed through bunch thinning, this vintage made it possible to create this Cuvée Prestige Edizione 43, which exalts the expression of the fruit from the Chardonnay grapes. An elegant, ample vintage, marked by vibrant freshness. Average yield per hectare 9,800 kilograms, equivalent to 6,170 liters of wine (grape-to-wine yield: 63%).View all products by Ca' del BoscoCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING
