Our barolo wines show a good body with a persistent aroma of ripe fruit, warm and enveloping in the mouth.

GROWING SEASON

The year started behind the average trend, with the buds opening delayed of approximately 15 days; in a short time, however, the blossoming stage was reached at the end of May, in line with average hot years. In mid-June, therefore slightly in advance, veraison started; for later-ripening vines

(in particular, Nebbiolo for Barolo) it started in mid-/late July. A quick drop in temperatures occurred in early September, interspersed with moderate rains. The Nebbiolo for Barolo ripening was optimum, with an excellent health of grapes, therefore a high quality level, to which quite a high alcohol strength contributed.

YIELD

Given the characteristics of the year, the yield was normal for all vines, with the exception of Nebbiolo for Barolo, whose yield was 10/15% lower than expected.
