The 2018 harvest was very characteristic and very different from that of 2017.
There was an abundance of rain in March, which allowed, on the one hand for the harvest to recover last year’s heat and drought but on the other hand, calling for more manual vineyard operations. Il Botolo achieved higher yields compared to 2017, with excellent quality.
As always, the harvest started with the Chardonnay grapes at the end of August followed by Moscato. The red grapes were harvested slightly later than last year. This delay allowed us to take advantage of the dry spell and the above average seasonal temperatures in the last 10 days of August and the first half of September, ensuring a very good harvest of Nizza.
What will you find in our winery? White and aromatic wines, such as Moscato, and rich and balanced red wines with great potential for aging. Overall, 2018 is a very good year.
This year Nizza docg celebrates its 4th birthday. The year 2020 has been a challenge for us all, but this has not put a damper on our desire to celebrate our territory’s young but oh so precious wine!
