Vegetative cycle

In terms of the length of the vegetative cycle of vines, 2017 shows significant differences from other early vintages. This year, the period from sprouting to technological maturity, although early, still averaged 185 days, while in previous similar vintages it was around 170 days, compared to 200 days in vintages considered ‘late’.
In short, it was an early year for 2017 Barolo Brunella, but the vine still managed to complete its growing cycle adequately.

Climatic trend

The 2017 wine year will be remembered for the warm weather and especially the lack of rain. The winter was mild with little snowfall, while the spring saw some rainfall and temperatures above seasonal average, which favored the early development of the vines, that was kept constant throughout the season. Starting in May, a long period of good weather began thanks to anticyclones.

From the first week of September, temperatures dropped significantly and we observed a weather closer to the seasonal average, with significant temperature variations between day and night. This situation mainly improved the polyphenolic profile of black grapes with a medium-long growing cycle, such as Nebbiolo, which recorded distinct data compared to other “hot” vintages. In fact, improvements in both quantity and extraction were noticeable this year for 2017 Barolo Brunella.
