SAN PONZIO Nebbiolo d'Alba superiore

Vintage description

The 2016 harvest was characterized by a slow pace. Since the bud break, and then also in the summer, the vines were constantly lagging behind the norm. Only in August and September there was a partial recovery of the schedule. 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 pick the grapes and sort them in a particularly accurate way.
