Characteristics of the vintage

The vintage 2015 has been characterized by a rainy and cool spring, and a dry and sunny summer.

Because of the perfect conditions in the first half of the year, the ripening has been slightly anticipated.

The drop of the temperatures in September has been essential to keep the acidic high and to maintain the primary aromas until the harvest’s day.

Tasting notes

View: The wine is limpid, bright and has a lemon yellow color with reflections tending to green.

Nose: The intensity of the aromas is high but never blatant. Hints of citrus, herbaceous characteristics of cut hay and white flowers.

Palate: The wine is dry characterized by a high acidity that guarantees dynamism and ease of drinking, making the wine lean and vibrant at the same time. The aromas perceived in the nose there are also in the mouth. The wine is sapid and the finish is definitely mineral.
