The Vintage 2017
Mild temperatures and low rainfall in January and early February. Spring began with a considerable amount of rain, though it did not cause any plant disease damage because of the not high average temperatures. The summer began slowly but extended until the end of September giving us very healthy grapes. All varieties including Nebbiolo achieved the full ripening. In particular, the second half of September was crucial for the components which will go into determining the structure of the wines, above-all as regards the accumulation of color and tannins.
