The 2018 Pcaro del guila Clarete is riper comes from a cooler and slow-ripening year and had a shorter levage 16 months in French oak barrels. 2018 is one of the greatest vintages in the zone in recent years but perhaps not as fresh as 2016 was. It was a textbook harvest and all the clarete was bottled without malolactic to keep the vibrant acidity. This combines power and elegance and it's still young and only starting to develop the perfume that to me is the giveaway for this wine which I found when tasting the 2017 next to this. This is a very pretty and pleasant wine tasty and easy to drink. A crowd-pleaser. 9821 bottles and 456 magnums were filled in February 2020.
