The Vintage 2017
This vintage will be remembered for its hot climate, and in particular low rainfall. winter was mild, with only a few snowfalls, while spring was marked by some rain and above-average temperatures for the season. Towards the end of April, the sharp drop in temperatures recorded - especially overnight - throughout Italy caused some frost damage, though in the Langhe only the bottoms of the valleys and cooler slopes were affected. May saw the beginning of a long period of fine weather. The maximum temperatures recorded during the summer months were above average but the nights were cooler than in other hot years. Between the end of August and the beginning of September, eagerly-awaited rain helped to accumulate 25 mm of water, which partially rebalanced the water supply. Starting from the first week in September, temperatures dropped appreciably and growing patterns were nearer seasonal averages, with considerable differences between day and night temperatures. Harvested the last week of August.
