Vistamare 2015 Tasting Notes Released

2015 vistamare bottleThe 2015 has been a positive vintage, notably in the Bolgheri area. Drinkability and juiciness are the features of this vintage which shows balance between acidity and perfectly ripen grape.

Climate and harvest
The 2015 winter has been a cold one followed by a rainy spring, thus providing the appropriate amount of water reserves to the soil and also decisively hampering the diseases pressure in the vineyards. The 2015 summer started with a positive and balanced situation in the vineyard, which has been crucial to face the very high temperatures of July and August. Very little selection has been necessary in the vineyard, and the 2015 grape which entered the cellar was clean and healthy. The fermentations have carried out regularly and without arrests, resulting in medium-to high acidity wines with remarkable fresh aromas. The harvest began with Viognier on August 27 and ended with Vermentino on September 11. The 2015 Vistamare displays a pleasant readiness to drinking.

Tasting notes
Clear and bright green-lemon color. The nose open up with typical Vermentino notes: white flowers and crispy citrus fruit. Viognier finds its expression through notes of melon, apricot and mirabelle plum. In the mouth, the blend of Vistamare finds its perfect balance, with Vermentino providing freshness and drinkability, while Viognier gives body and roundness to the palate. In the finish is clean and inviting with an almost salty touch, proving the sea-facing exposure of the Vistamare vineyards.
