Solosole Pagus Camilla
2015 is considered one of Bolgheri’s greatest years. A significantly rainy winter allowed the vines to absorb water in the spring, leading to uniform and luxuriant budding that lasted until the beginning of June. The particularly favourable climatic conditions during the summer ensured regular development of all of the subsequent phenological phases, from fruit set to maturation. Considerable heat in July was mitigated by some providential storms; while a sunny and fairly windy August allowed the grapes to reach ideal phenolic ripeness. The harvest, which began on August 31st and ended on October 7th, was facilitated by numerous sunny days interspersed with sporadic rainfall. This is a memorable vintage with wines that boast good balance, great structure, and intense aromas.
