Winemaker's Notes

Following the abundant 2013 season, and exacerbated by a dry winter and cold, windy conditions at flowering, yields were down by 50% in 2014. We were fortunate in that we did not experience heat extremes during this growing season, the third year in a row. This is particularly important for the heat sensitive nebbiolo grape. With Nebbiolo, the variation in clonal characteristics is quite pronounced and we have planted the vineyard to be able to choose from many parcels (21 in total).

The Ragazzi Nebbiolo cuvee is chosen from those that are charming and accessible in their youth (i.e. with more open aromatics and lower tannins) These parcels are given slightly shorter macerations (approx. 2 to 3 weeks) and shorter maturation (10 months) in a greater proportion of smaller format barrels (80% barriques).
