Nebbiolo d’Alba Superiore
The 2015 began with heavy snowfall that allowed an excellent accumulation of water in the soil. The vegetative cycle was anticipated, and after a mild spring there was a very hot and dry summer. Precisely at this stage the winter water reserves were useful, which allowed the plants not to go into stress and to carry out an excellent ripening of the bunches.
