SAN PONZIO Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC Superiore

Vintage description

The 2019 agricultural campaign started slowly due to the prolongation of the winter season until February, with the consequent delay of the spring season. Nonetheless, the vegetative recovery has been regular and the high temperatures of June, July and August combined with the water availability of the soil have created the conditions for rapid vegetative development. A long and mild autumn allowed for an excellent ripening of the grapes. The vintages with a long cycle like that of 2019 have always been considered excellent.
