“The advantage we have with the 2011 harvest with different climatic phenomena is that our plots are on very good land. The plateau” of Pomerol, with deep clay which allows us to control the state vine water and support the warm, dry years like 2011. The strength of our wines is that we can differentiate between years of each other with good acidity, tannins that need to be mature at the time of harvest for a texture in the mouth without aggressiveness” – Marcelo Pelleriti, winemaker
