An exceptional vintage, characterized by a high concentration, but where the harmony was yet maintained. The hot and dry summer, together with the constant ventilation from the sea, helped the slightly early ripening. Yields per hectare were low, as well as the wine yields because the grapes had a particularly thick peel.
