A very good vintage that influenced in a very positive way the wines of 2015. After a rather mild winter with colder temperatures in January and February and heavy rains, during the second week of April the vines started vegetating thanks to mild temperatures and sunny days. The rains, very abundant in the early spring, brought to a quicker vegetation of the plants and at the same time helped the water reserve of the soils. The flowering was excellent, finished towards the end of May and was followed by a great budding, favored by good climate. June and the first half of July were characterized by temperatures above the seasonal average but from late July the they went back in their usual range. This climatic oscillation was mainly due to some rains that brought fresh air, very useful for the health of the vineyards and consequently for the excellent ripening of the grapes. Thermal excursion between day and night that lasted throughout August guaranteed the excellent phenolic ripeness of the grapes.
