Appelation: IGT – Indicazione geografica tipica
The 2015 vintage was characterized by abundant winter rainfall and a dry and mild spring. The bud break, considerably earlier than in 2014, was followed by an equally precocious flowering. The first part of summer saw an important rise in temperatures which required an irrigation of some of the vineyard plots to balance incipient problems of drought-induced vine stress. Rains and lower temperatures during the second half of August assisted the ripening phase of the vine cycle, the accumulation of sugars, and the synthesizing of aromatic substances. Picking took place during the month of September.
