55% Cabernet Sauvignon
5% Petit Verdot
The 2015 vintage was a vintage to remember for favorable weather conditions. A rainy, mild winter saw just a few days with below freezing temperatures along with a spring characterized by sunny and dry days allowed for a regular sprouting. The summer months were hot, especially July, which will be remembered as one of the most torrid months of the last century. August, thanks to three heavy rainfalls and a decrease in temperatures, allowed a regular physiological recovery of ripening. Cool temperatures during September and October allowed for gradual and regular ripening until harvesting. These climatic conditions, coupled with precise and attentive vineyard management, have made it possible to achieve a good aromatic quality and phenolic maturation of the grapes. The Merlot harvest took place in the first part of September, followed by the earliest parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon. In the first days of October the last parcels of Cabernet S. and Petit Verdot were harvested.
The 2015 vintage will produce 15.500 bottles.
