harvest note

2015 has shown to be a very good vintage. After a mild and rainy winter, the vegetative start was in the second week of April with the arrival of spring and higher temperatures. The spring rains helped a lot the vegetation and ensured the water supply for the following summer. In June and mid-July temperatures were above the seasonal average, but by the end of July the temperatures lowered, returning to the average thanks to long rainy days, which was really good for the vines. The grapes were of an excellent quality. The wonderful structure and the elegant, soft tannins are the main elements of this vintage.

tasting note

Notes of red cherries with some underlying oak adding spice and complexity. The palate is elegant and harmonious with fine, rounded tannins and a long polished finish.

food pairing

Pair with roast meats, particularly beef, whether it be filet de sirloin or Tuscan T-Bone.
