About the wine
The growing season 2015 was quite regular without extreme events. Winter was mild with temperatures falling to freezing only at the end of December and in January and February. Spring was also regular. Although a little cold at the beginning, temperatures began to rise and were average afterwards. May and June were warm favouring a perfect flowering and veraison. Rainfall was not excessive, about 150 mm. Summer began earlier, with high temperatures already at the end of June when we recorded peaks of even 34-35 °C (93.2-95 °F). July was also particularly warm, above all in the first decade, with peaks of even 40 °C (104 °F). Rainfall was scarce (about 100 mm), but the good water supplies during the winter and spring months prevented drought stress. September and October showed perfect weather conditions, with significant day-to-night temperature ranges, favouring the accumulation of colour and polyphenols in the grapes.

"Powerhouse. Strong tannins, good acid, excellent structure and body."
95 Points, James Suckling
"Incredible depth of pure fruit and a linear structure to this young wine. Very fine and attractive tannins. All in depth and finesse."
94 points, Decanter World Wine Awards
"Spicy oak with red fruit, blueberry and cherry aromas. The palate is gently smoky with fine tannins and a chalky minerality."
93 points, Wine Spectator
"This is pure and silky, boasting cherry, raspberry, peony and spice flavors. Intense and harmonious, picking up accents of chocolate, tobacco and mineral on the lingering finish. Merlot. Drink now through 2024. 1,791 cases made."
