The 2014 vintage was a surprise. The season was not easy, especially due to summer rains. Despite this, the last part of the season allowed to obtain ripe grapes, even if a little less concentrated than usual. The wines are lean and elegant.

Notes

Lazzarito gives its best in elegant vintages. It is in fact a vineyard devoted to strength and solarity, which expresses a particular balance in the slightly milder vintages like 2014.
