LA MATTA Barbera d'Alba superiore DOC

Vintage description

The 2016 harvest was certainly characterized by slowness. Since the budding, and then also in summer, the vines have been constantly lagging behind the norm. Only in August and September there’s been a partial recovery of the times. In any case, this particularity has somewhat protracted up to the harvest where it has become an advantage. In this phase, in fact, we had the time to select the bunches in a particularly accurate way.
