Year: 2020

The 2020 vintage began with a relatively warm winter and spring that resulted in the vines budding and flowering early. Temperatures only dropped in the first 3 weeks of June only to rise again immediately and remain high throughout the summer. We had a particularly dry winter and spring with almost no rain in summer, only to start again towards the end of August and during the harvest. We can say therefore that summer was generally hot and dry with harvest taking place a few days earlier than usual.

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.
