From the climatic point of view, the 2015 vintage was characterized by scarce rainfall, sunshine, and much heat. The growth of the vines was a regular one thanks to the reserves of ground water accumulated in the soil during the winter and to warm temperatures as well. From mid-July all the way through August, high heat slowed down the various phases of ripening which would otherwise have terminated well in advance of the normal period. Thanks to this climate, the harvest began in late August, as is customary for Pinot Grigio.
The grapes this year were very ripe and healthy with normal sugar and acidity levels.
The grapes, machine harvested, were pressed and the must chilled to a temperature of 46° Fahrenheit (8° centigrade) to assist a natural static settling of impurities. The must then went into temperature-controlled stainless steel fermenting tanks where it fermented at temperatures held to a maximum of 62° Fahrenheit (17° centigrade). The wine was conserved in stainless steel tanks, filtered, and then bottled.
