Presentation

The vintage
2015 was a magnificent year in the south as well, characterized by excellent sanitary conditions thanks to the mild, wet winter, followed by a relatively hot, dry spring. The vines coped well with the extreme heat and lack of rain in the summer thanks to good hydric reserves. Following satisfactory flowering, rapid and regular ripening was assisted by rain that fell in August, producing berries rich in phenolic compounds and anthocyanins. As in the north, harvesting took place under excellent conditions.

Bright orange-pink. Fresh red berry and oranges pith aromas, along with a hint of white pepper. Spicy red currant and bitter citrus fruit flavors show good clarity and a slightly firm edge. In an uncompromising style for the price, offering good finishing bite and decent persistence.
