harvest note

The 2015 vintage had standard temperatures and high rainfall during winter, essential in creating a water reserve in the subsoil. A mild spring resulted in early flowering. Summer was one of the hottest in history with temperatures near or higher than 104°F between July and August. These conditions staved off any vine diseases and yielded healthy grapes. For the red grapes, picking began on September 2nd with Ancellotta and September 10th with Lambrusco. Ideal weather in September allowed the harvest to continue without interruption through completion on October 8th. Grapes are of good quality, with a slight decrease in acidity compared to the previous year, and should produce wines of good aromatic intensity, structure and alcoholic content.

tasting note

A vivid, brilliant ruby red, the wine shows classic red fruit aromas. Though dry, the palate is fruity, round and exuberant with fine and persistent bubbles.

food pairing

Delicious with cured pork meats such as salami or mortadella or a variety of pasta dishes such as tortellini or lasagne.
