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
Ripe fruits and sweet aromatic notes of spices are prevalent to the nose, with the lightest hint of mint. It is generously soft to the palate, it ends by tannins of finest class.
Food Pairing
At “Villa di Nozzole” they like to serve wine with handmade tagliatelle and white truffle from San Miniato.
