(15 in this is said 'Quinze', as in 15 in French, i.e. "jew-dy cahns" / Jeudi 15th / Thursday 15th being the date this wine was first harvested)
Nerello Mascalese from Contrada Monte Laguardia, situated at 800-840m and averaging at around 80 years old. Tiny portion of co-planted Alicante and Nerello Cappuccio too. Approx 30% whole bunch. Fermented in a large open-top wooden fermenter, then matured in large aged oak.
Crimson red in colour, this wine has lifted aromas of red cherries, wild raspberries and delicate white flowers. The palate is juicy, medium bodied and flavoursome, with bright red fruit and underlying spice. The tannins are fine and austere. The finish is mineral and long, typical of wines from volcanic soils.
