Bright straw-yellow colour with golden reflections. Intense and complex to the nose. The taste is close and rewarding, very persistent. Given the decidedly torrid vintage, it releases a great body, warm in alcohol but fresh in acidity.
The vintage was characterised by a severe drought during the summer, which resulted in the vineyard undergoing intense water stress, and for which only emergency irrigation was of aid to overcome the difficulties.
The overall quality of the 2012 wine was good, with a few cases of great and no points of excellence. In general, Tavignano has managed to obtain a great result thanks to the intervention of irrigation in the most critical moments.
