Vintage description: 2015 began with heavy snowfall that allowed for a good accumulation of water in the soil. The vegetative cycle was anticipated, and after a mild spring came a very hot and dry summer. Thanks to the winter water reserves, the plants did not undergo any stress, which allowed for an excellent ripening of the fruit.
