Description

2015 Vintage is available by the bottle at the LCBO in the Vintages section, or by the case through Stem Wine Group - call the office for more info.  416-548-8824.  This vintage has been awarded the following accolades:  96pts Robert Parker, 93pts Wine Spectator, 97pts Anthony Galloni and 98pts James Suckling. Conteisa, unfortunately often hit by hail during the last years, was luckily saved in 2015 and shows its expression at the best. Highly favorable climate conditions throughout all the year (snow in winter, rain in spring, a perfect summer) favored a high quality. The peak temperature during varaison and few rain showers between August and September were further optimal conditions for a great vintage.
