2017 is an outstanding vintage that will bring us muchjoy for a long time to come as the wines have tremendous aging potential. After a cold winter that brought snow for a few days and a mild spring, summer arrived suddenly at the end of May. It was one of the hottest we can remember. Thanks to a generally dry season we were able to harvest perfectly ripe and healthy grapes. The Vigna Doghessa was picked on the beginning of September 2017.
