Tasting Notes & Food Pairing
Bollicini is our version of the famed Italian Prosecco. The 2015 vintage is bursting with bright ripe citrus and tropical fruit notes with a generous full mouthfeel and a lingering floral finish. Perfect for Sunday brunch, or an aperitif before dinner, try pairing Bollicini with soft cheeses, fresh berries, or Italian panettone.
Yet again, the Finger Lakes experienced another very harsh winter in 2015. Two harsh winters in a row caused lots of bud death and vine damage, but as always, lower yields result in improved fruit quality. In spite of the harsh winter we were graced with a growing season that started out cool and wet but finished with a healthy showing of sun and heat. Harvest kicked off at the usual time with lots of sun and was temperate with little rain. All in all it was a good harvest and though yields were down between 20-40% on nearly every varietal the result was exceptional quality, with complex fruit across the board. Expect lush, rich, voluptuous wines from this vintage!
