Tasting

Detailed information

Vintage

After a very warm summer period, welcome rains arrived mid-August, followed again by glorious sunny weather. A beneficial wind then helped to accelerate the ripening process. This allowed the grapes to be harvested under ideal conditions, with perfectly ripe healthy fruit. Thanks to this, 2015 is one of the greatest vintages of the last ten years.
Harvested between 11th and 24th September 2015.
