DABATIE' Langhe Nebbiolo DOC

Vintage description

The 2017 vintage has been warm and dry. The slight vegetative advance coincided with a particularly intense spring frost that affected many parts of Europe. This was the first cause of 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 berries on average smaller and more concentrated than usual have well matured.

Notes

Da Batiè 2017 tells about the chalky sands from which it derives. The ripe warm vintage tones are well balanced by its characteristic sapid taste.
