WHAT YEAR WAS 2017?
In terms of weather conditions, the year was marked by very little rainfall and rather high temperatures; such weather had not occurred in many years. In the management of the vineyard, we at Poggio la Luna did not perform any defoliation and trimming, in order to protect grapes from excessive solar radiation. The 2017 weather has also encouraged the growth of healthy clusters and allowed us decreasing the amount of plant-health measures to a minimum. In short, 2017 was an “excellent year” certainly from the point of view of quality with healthy grapes and no use of chemicals in the cellar, even if the scarcity of rain has made the production very limited: in a few words, the 2017 wine is not abundant, but excellent!
