Vegetative cycle

From the point of view of the duration of the vine’s growing cycle, in 2017 there have been many differences with other early years. In fact, this year the period between budding and technological maturation, although early, was still an average of 185 days, while in other similar years it was around 170 compared to 200 in years considered ‘late’.
In short, for 2017 Barolo it was indeed an early year, but the vine was nevertheless able to fully develop.

Climatic trend

The 2017 vintage year will be remembered for the warm climate and in particular for the low rainfalls that characterized this period. Winter was mild with few snowfalls, while the spring was characterized by some rains and temperatures above the seasonal average which further favored the vegetative development of the vine, which immediately proved to be early and persisted for the rest of the season. A long period of good weather began in May due to the passage of numerous anticyclones.

Starting from the first week of September, temperatures dropped significantly and a trend closer to the seasonal averages was noted with significant temperature changes between day and night. The polyphenolic profile of black berried grapes with a medium – long vegetative cycle, such as Nebbiolo, benefited most from this situation, which recorded data that differ from other “interesting” vintages. In fact, in 2017 we observed better values ​​both in terms of quantity and in terms of extractability for 2017 Barolo.
