As it happened the years before also this autumn and a part of the winter is mild and dry. On march the soil is dry and this dryness get late the beginning of the season . May and june become very wet with heavy rains and big gap of temperature between day and night .This phenomenon becomes extremily strong in Valpolicella as any high hills and cooler soils. Since middle of june summer starts with his tipical temperatures and rains become more rare. It remains 10-15 days of late and grapes starts to change color only around middle of august thank the good gap of temperature between day and night. The hot and humidity come back an a early part of September and some vineyards high in altitude need some irrigation to complete the ripeness of the fruit.

Harvest starts late, middle of September with Amarone, Recioto selection and Trebbiano di soave; and in October with Garganega grape. Against any general opinion season shows immediately generous with bunches rich of juice. The young wine taste sapid, with a good acidity and a lovely aromatic bouquet. The harvest finish on 28th of October with a good climate condition. This vintage gives wine balanced, elegance and we see a really good potential longevity too. We have considered 2015 a vintage more for red wine with 2016 we think is definetly more for great white wines !!
