NAME: Bianco IGT Sangiò 2015
GRAPES: Sangiovese vinified in white
WEATHER CONDITIONS: The good accumulated water reserves determined an interesting vegetative growth, resulting in a spring that favored the phenological stages and gave way to a hot summer, mitigated in the second half of August by beneficial rains. These conditions sanctioned a very positive path for the maturation of the grapes with the accumulation of aromatic and polyphenolic substances. The year 2015 can be considered qualitatively very good with many excellent tips, especially for wines made from red grapes. 2015 could be framed as one vintage to remember.
