2015 Torraccia Del Piantavigna Gattinara
2015 Torraccia Del Piantavigna Gattinara The 2015 vintage started a little early, passing through sustained rainfall in the second half of April and a generally warm month of May. Flowering occurs a week early on average. The summer was hot and dry. In particular, July was marked by an absence of precipitation and persistent heat, with monthly values which were decidedly higher than average. In August the hot temperatures dropped, but still remained high. September continued in a favourable manner for the ripening of the grape, allowing for a tranquil and friendly harvest.
Elevated sugar accumulation (without the excesses of other very early vintages like 2003, 2009 and 2011), on average low acidity and generally excellent health of the grapes are the typical characteristics of the 2015 vintage. The colour is tile-red with orange highlights. On the nose, it is subtle and elegant with primary and tertiary notes of rose, stone fruits and straw. On the palate the 2015 vintage is smooth, slender, taut, quite expansive, developing a pleasing, delicate mineral and vegetal side.
This wine is already drinking well and will continue to develop well with age.
