SPRING was fairly cool and rainy, particularly so in May.
The summer was hot with occasional very high temperatures.
As we had no irrigation water, luckily it rained occasionally during the second half of July.
Phenologic changes were delayed and on all the vines the grapes did not ripen until well into September.

Tasting
color:straw yellow.
perfume:floral, with notes of pineapple and apple.
taste:elegant and fresh, with a good structure and a very persistent yellow fruit aftertaste.

History of wine

The family selection of our best Barriques.
Prelius was the ancient Maremma Toscana, an ancient salty lake where the Etruscans first and the Romans later used to produce salt and breed fishes. The floods of the Ombrone river have filled the Prelius lake and created the fertile soil of the Maremma Toscana. Here is where the Benedictine Monks have established their Abbey and started to grow grapes, more precisely in the district of Prile, the modern name of Prelius exactly where we grow our vines.
