Terlaner Primo Grande Cuvée 2018 Vintage

The 2018 vintage, from a meteorological point of view, could be defined as "extreme" as it was characterized by a snowy winter and a rainy March, conditions which allowed an excellent supply of water for the vines. Due to the cooler temperatures of early spring, budding began later than in previous years - in mid-April. The continuation of the season was characterized by an almost summery climate, alternating with intense rain, which guaranteed rapid phenological development of the vines, giving rise to flowering at the end of May, a month characterized by a variable and rainy climate. Subsequently, a torrid June ended with a hailstorm covering a large area, causing damage in some of our vineyards, which our producers promptly repaired with great diligence and commitment.The months of July and August were characterized by a great heat wave without precipitation, interrupted by heavy rains at the beginning of September.As in 2017, the harvest began on August 22nd. Overall, the vintage was satisfactory both in terms of quantity and quality of the wines produced.
