“The 2016 Barolo vintage is almost here and our excitement is palpable! Producers all throughout Piedmonte are reporting happy harvests with fruit of exceptional quality. These grapes have a sugar concentration that rivals the richness of 2015, but with greater structure and livelier acidity. 2015 was an unusually warm year and winemakers were forced to pick early due to the threat of strong storms. In 2016, producers had the luxury to take their time, which allowed the grapes to reach their peak point of ripeness. This longer than average harvest meant more fruit of higher quality, resulting in a higher production of Barolo than the previous vintage. Winemakers predict these wines to have the power of the 2015 vintage with a new level of finesse imparted by the perfectly ripened fruit! We are excited to share these incredible wines so that you too can experience the majesty of Pidemonte.”
