The 2015 vintage
2015 was a warm yet good vintage.
According to Langhe Vini, the consorzio for Barolo, Barbaresco, Alba, Langhe and Dogliani, ‘the climatic conditions recorded at the beginning of the summer laid the foundations for the ripening of the grapes about 10 days earlier than in the previous vintage, but in line with what we would call a “normal” year.
‘In terms of quantity, production was on average within the norm.’

The insolation improved the colour-giving anthocyanins accumulated within the grapes.
In the finished wines, the quality of the tannins ensures elegant, long-lasting Riserva with good structure.
