PAULIN Dolcetto d'Alba DOC

Vintage description

The 2017 vintage was warm and dry. The slight vegetative advance coincided with a particularly intense spring frost that effected many parts of Europe. This was the first cause if quantity decrease. The scarcity of rainfall was the second cause. At a physiological level the plants have exploited the little rain at the beginning of September to the fullest, and therefore on average the grapes are smaller and more concentrated with a perfect even ripening.
