Colleita simply means vintage and each version is numbered since the first commercial release Nº 6 in 2018. 2021 will be Nº 9.

Vintage Notes 2021
A very cool and wet year when the sun hardly shone and the grapes really struggled to ripen and also to deal with mildew. Yet the results are great, very fresh, very pure wines with good fruit intensity.

Tasting: 2022-11-18 piercing aromas of crunchy red and black berry fruit, cassis, cherry to the fore, then a sappy, crunchy, juicy palate, pure and elegant, with a very fine pronounced backbone of tannin and long, sustained finish. Both polished and raw at the same time. A total pleasure. 2022-11-25 after one week open, more plum, rose, some honey, still fresh, still a pleasure.
