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 received the following accolades:  95pts Robert Parker, 97pts Wine Spectator, 94pts Anthony Galloni and 97pts, James Suckling.  The winter in 2015 has been mild, followed by a rainy spring, which has provided a good amount of water to the vineyards. May 2015 was marked by strong temperature variations, crucial for slowing down the blossoming. Indeed, the bud break has been on average with the previous year. Thanks to the appropriate agronomical techniques put in place (cover crops, no trimmings, shadowing of the bunches) the vines reacted well to the steady heating trend that took place between July and mid-August. The 2015 harvest will be remembered for the even ripening of the various plots and the consequent compactness of the picking period. The harvest has been completed in one day, September 29. The fermentations have been regular and steady, with an average length of fifteen days. The wines feature a gentle tannic structure, a wellbalanced acidity and alcohol, and a great mouth filling texture.

Aroma

Intensity and balance are the features of the 2015 Sorì San Lorenzo. The classic San Lorenzo character shows through the pure and clean notes of white musk, roots, bark, graphite and gravel. An inviting marzipan note gives an original sweet twist to the nose.

Taste

The palate shows remarkable fruit concentration, with notes of dark cherry, black currant, menthol, black pepper. Tannins, acidity and alcohol are perfectly integrated. Sorì San Lorenzo 2015 is a layered wine, sweet and balanced now, but its proverbial intensity will need the benefit of the ageing to fully express.

Vinification

Fermentation and maceration for around three weeks.

Aging

Ageing in oak for 24 months.
