Harvest 2023

The vintage began with the unknowns due to the anomalous climate trend of the previous year characterized by a long period of drought.

A colder winter than in the previous year extended through until the end of February, with significant rainfall allowing the vines to resume normal physiological postdormancy activity during the last ten days of March.

In Spring the development of the plant continued regularly despite the fluctuating climatic context: a first part was characterized by very little rain and instead the months of May and June by frequent and sometimes significant disturbances and a generally cool climate. These conditions on the one hand facilitated the vegetative development of the plant, on the other they required great attention to avoid the onset of early plant diseases.

During the summer the climatic situation was unstable with very heavy rains which in July marked a climatic inversion which brought heat and meteorological stability without consequences of water stress in the vineyards. The veraison, which began in the first ten days of August, revealed a good production load with notable health of the bunches, suggesting a good harvest both in terms of quality and quantity.

The grapes developed in line with the traditional timing of the area, but all in ideal conditions: Dolcetto from the second half of September followed by Barbera to conclude with Nebbiolo in late October. Nebbiolo, especially in vineyards suitable for Barolo, once again shows its ability to adapt to this territory and presents itself with phenolic levels typical of great vintages.

In conclusion, we are looking forward to a year with wines that are elegant, balanced, pleasant and have great potential.
