Technical notes

The growing season was characterised by a fine autumn and heavy rains throughout winter that helped develop good water reserves. The budding phase took place about one week later than average, but the positive climate in April and May, and the particularly hot July days mitigated by cool evening breezes, accelerated the plants’ growth for an early veraison. The grapes’ ripening progressed at a soft rhythm thanks to the August rain showers that lowered the temperatures and contributed to product with excellent polyphenolic aromas.

Organoleptic Notes: Pietraregia 2015 is a ruby red wine with a bouquet that expresses ripe fruit notes of plums with a nuance of blackberry and floral violets that give way to a smoky and spiced cinnamon aroma. In the mouth, the wine is elegantly structured and marked by good acidity, which exalts the crisp raspberry fruitiness that leads into spicy notes. The wine’s finish is sweet and persistent.

match: Stewed meat like rabbit or chicken, also excellent with medium-aged cheese.
