The 2016 grape harvest is complete!

 

The 2016 harvest has come to an end. 40 days of hard work to pick the 8 grape varieties from which we will produce the wines that will delight you in the next few years. Some examples? Barbaresco, Barolo, Arneis “Magia”, Barbera “I Patriarchi”, Valsellera Rosé…

The 2016 harvest has come to an end. 40 days of hard work to pick the 8 grape varieties from which we will produce the wines that will delight you in the next few years. Some examples? Barbaresco, Barolo, Arneis “Magia”, Barbera “I Patriarchi”, Valsellera Rosé…

The scent of freshly harvested grapes and of fermenting must have filled our cellar and our days. The must has now turned into wine, and it will rest in vats for a few more months. 

This years’ grapes are all excellent, but Barbera is the real queen of the harvest: healthy and wonderfully ripe bunches, that will provide us with a full-bodied wine, rich in color and with a fruity bouquet.

What is new in 2016 is the Green Experience certification: a recognition of our commitment for a more natural management of the vineyard, by limiting the use of pesticides and avoiding herbicides. The Langhe Chardonnay Gallina will be the first wine to receive this certification; you will recognize it from the “Green Experience” sticker on the label.

2015 vs 2016: what’s the difference?

“We are very proud of this grape harvest. In recent years, thanks to the climate change and the thinning of clusters, grapes have ripened better, leading to an early picking time, which now falls between late August and early October. The weather was favorable: mild, dry climate allowed us to work without hurry. We were able to carefully choose the best day to harvest, without having to fear rain”, These are the words of Fabrizio, oenologist of the winery and representative of the fifth generation of Francone winemakers.
Over the coming months we will keep you updated with the evolution of our wines, hoping for the best!

Cheers!
