Bruno Rocca Nebbiolo Langhe Fralu 2017

GRAPES/BLEND
100% Nebbiolo

VINIFICATION
The fruit is hand-harvested at low yields of just 50 Hl per hectare. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel for 8-10 days at 26-28 degrees Celsius maximum to preserve the fresh fruit and floral aromas. Maturation occurs in a mixture of small and medium sized French oak barrels for 8 - 12 months.

VINTAGE NOTES
A rather particular and challenging vintage, with significantly lower yields correlating to exceptional quality. The fluctuating climate ran from spring frosts and hail, to a warm, dry summer and subsequent early harvest. Luckily the trend in autumn was also dry meaning the low but healthy yields could be harvest early and at the optimal time. The skins were thick and healthy which permitted long macerations and will lead to balanced, complex and structured wines with great colour and generosity. Whilst it is still early, everything is pointing to a great vintage.
