Vintage: the 2013 vintage was characterized by fairly balanced climatic trends, marked by a mild winter, with good rainfall (767,8 mm of rainfall compared to the ten-year average of 670 mm), which was followed by a cool, ventilated spring. July and August passed without excesses of heat and with an excellent temperature range between day and night. In late August some rainfall and cooler temperatures allowed the red grapes to reach optimal phenolic ripeness. The harvest of the grapes destined for Sedàra begins at the end of August with the Merlot and continues through the first two weeks of September, with the harvest of Syrah, Nero d’Avola and Cabernet Sauvignon.
