The 2017 vintage was characterized by a long dry summer with very little rainfall. Therefore, in the vineyards, agronomic practices that allow us to preserve the freshness of the soil and the grapes were adopted. Exceptional work was done to oxygenate the roots and avoid the loss of leaves which were necessary to provide shade and protect the berries from direct sunlight. The period of thinning was also delayed in order to minimize any chance of damage to the grape clusters. In order to maintain elegance, freshness and to avoid an excessive alcohol gradation, the harvest took place approximately ten days early compared to the normal harvest period. Le Orme 2017 is an excellent vintage. Barbera, more than other vines, thrives in these climatic conditions as long as the precautions mentioned above are taken in the management of the vineyards.
