The 2021 vintage will be remembered for the frost that hit Maremma, Tuscany on April 8, causing serious damage to the premature grapes. April and May were notable for lower than average temperatures and low rainfall. The summer was very hot and there was little rain.The harvest began a little earlier than expected.

Tasting
perfume:Floral aromas merge with hints of racy, citrus, pineapple and mineral characters coupled with a soft marine influence.
taste:On the palette, it is a refreshing, elegant wine while retaining balanced acidity. The mouth feel bursts with fresh fruit and lingers on the finish.

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.
