Pasta with ragù, turkey, medium aged cheeses.

Enjoyable now, will age gracefully over the next 5-7 years.
The 2021 vintage began with rain and snow that piled up to 24 inches among the vineyards. March was dry with temperatures above average that prompted an early start of vegetation. Spring brought previous rainfall and below average temperatures that lasted until the end of May slowed the development of the vines. June was the beginning of a long, hot, and dry summer that lasted until a mild September. Harvest was at the usual time, yielding healthy and perfectly ripe grapes characterized by outstanding balance.
