VINTAGE

2001

WEATHER CONDITIONS

The winter was characterized by long rainy periods, allowing for good water supply in the soil; April was particularly unstable with a sudden lowering of temperature.
The temperature slightly raised above the season average from May; there were scarce rains in June and July, while it was very hot in August until the first days of September, with no rains; then, there was an unstable period with lowering temperatures.

And five, you wouldn't believe it! An extraordinary vintage that will be remembered in particular for the longevity of our Barolo wines, especially Villero.

GROWING SEASON

The good water supply favoured early budding; from the month of May, the high temperatures allowed a quick development of the vines with a good leaf surface. Nebbiolo blossoming started in the last week of May; later, the development

occurred regularly. The unstable period of September temporarily slowed up the ripening of black grape varieties, but the weather cleared up very soon and the nebbiolo ripening turned out perfect.

YIELD

The average yield was 10% higher than expected, 5% in the case of nebbiolo for Barolo.
