 2015 VINTAGE

This is a year of great vitality in the vines, fertilized by a rainy winter, followed by a lot of heat during the summer. The long period of rain during the first days of October weakened the skins, a malignant cloud hung and dripped moisture for weeks. Dew shone on the grapes every morning.
The rain brought mold and other problems, so to keep the grapes healthy we went back to the vines after thinning to clean the grapes, bunch by bunch, grain by grain. We collected the Cesanese d'Affile and the petit verdot from 10 to 17 October.

This year, there is an austere petit verdot, a shameless Cesanese, with tannins and color. The vintage is not like 2012, nor 2014, but it paints a complete and structured picture of Etna, with a good skeleton, high acidity, and low alcohol. The 2015 wines on Etna are not very concentrated wines, but certainly of great longevity.
