Climate Vintage

Both the winter of 2012-2013 and the spring of 2013 were notably damp and cold. Given these climatic conditions, the vines were able to begin their growth and development with good reserves of ground water, but significantly later than other recent vintages. A further delay in vine growth and development was caused, above and beyond the rains of late May, by a drop in the minimum daily temperatures during this period. Flowering took place twelve days late than the average period of recent years.Bud set was regular in the better-positioned vineyard plots, but a certain percentage of the flowers, in cooler and damper sites, were not fertilized and dropped. From mid-August on, fortunately, sunny days and positive daytime to nighttime temperature swings favored a slow but steady ripening of the grapes. The harvest, which started with the Arneis and Dolcetto grapes on September 16th, began over two weeks later than in 2012. October was characterized by typical fall weather, frequent rainfall which slightly compromised the health and integrity of the grapes, especially the Barbera. After these rains, the human factor, the ability to select the grapes, to harvest only the better bunches, was of fundamental importance, and the resulting wines were quite interesting

Vintage

The grapes arrived in the cellars and were destemmed and crushed. Maceration lasted 10 days at a maximum temperature of 29°C. The malolactic fermentation was completed before the winter. Ageing took place for 12 months in 77 hectoliter oak casks. Another 4 months of bottle ageing followed in the Prunotto cellars before shipping
