harvest note

Winter 2014/2015 started with a lot of rain and mild temperatures. As usual, February and March were very dry and in May and early June we enjoyed some fair weather but also some decent rainfalls. After a cooler second half of August, temperatures were high again early September. Harvest started on the 2nd of September and finished on the 1st of October, but 80% of our vineyards were harvested before September 16th. Thanks to earlier harvest, we are very satisfied with the level of acidities in the 2015 wines. This year’s wines shows the potential of the really great vineyards that have acquired excellent ageing potential. 2015 has produced some very exciting wines!

tasting note

Quite expressive nose, with a seductive fruity aromatic profile. The palate shows an elegant mouthfeel, quite nervous and fresh. The finish is very dry, contributing to make this wine extremely enjoyable to drink now.

food pairing

Creamy pasta, smoked foods, chicken or rich seafood dishes.
