producer’s vintage notes

“The year 2014 in Piedmont was particularly rainy in the summer period, where the careful and professional management in the vineyard made the difference. In the case of Cipressi, due to the provenance of the grapes which are grown in the best exposed vineyards with very low yields, a wine of remarkable texture, character, great balance and pleasantness was achieved.” Stefano Chiarlo, winemaker
