Powerful winter storms delivered near record rainfall. Though spring was cold, summer warmth helped ripen the crop for harvest on August 30. The juice from this small Monte Bello parcel was sent to barrel to undergo a slow fermentation. The resulting wine gained both richness and complexity, as it aged on its gross lees. Firmly acidic and youthful, it will develop slowly over the next fifteen years.
