Harvest 2015: The 2015 vintage was marked by a hot and dry summer that favoured the trend for rapid ripening and low production compared to previous years. Spring was very dry, with heavy rains towards the flowering period (mid-June). The harvest followed its normal course, without stoppages and in advance of the usual period. The dry environment enabled a healthy grape overall.
