VINTAGE / HARVEST DESCRIPTION
The 2015 vintage was the latest ripening so far this century. Harvest began at CVNE on the 30th September and continued until the 31st October. At a cold sprind with high rainfall was then followed by a short summer. Benign temperatures in October provided a good conditions for the recovery of those vineyards worst affected by the adverse weather. The harvest required good selection but concluded with good expectations for the wines of this year.
Ruby red in colour, the wine shows a youthful hint at the rim.
The nose reveals interesting and complex aromas of ripe fruits in perfect balance with spices, toffee, roasted coffee and balsamic notes.
The palate is soft with silky tannins, good, fresh acidity and a long finish with a balsamic aftertaste.
In terms of matching, this wine is a perfect companion for any dish of the Mediterranean diet.
