While 2016 produced an epic vintage from 4 stellar seasons, the same can NOT be said about 2017. A dry, warm winter curated some early budding and a hail storm, followed by frost in Spring. This did not start the season off well. The heat continued through September putting pressure on the vines and grapes for most of the seasons resulting in a difficult vintage year. Ronchi was fortunate to miss the hail which caused major setback in production, however, the quality of the 2017 will be lighter in structure and color that you simply can not avoid with Mother Nature.  

Barbaresco, produced from selected Nebbiolo grapes, has a ruby red colour that tends to garnet red with aging. Bouquet of jams and strong spices (tobacco and liquorice). Very long and lingering aftertaste. Soft and austere with aging. The Reserve is produced only in certain vintages.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Color: Ruby red, tending to garnet red with aging Bouquet/Smell: Jams and strong spices (tobacco & liquorice) Taste: Very long and lingering aftertaste. Soft and austere with aging.
Winemaker Notes
Natural cold maceration for approximately one day. 20/25 days of fermentation, with automatic punching down in the first few days and pumping over at key stages in the process. Racking and gentle pressing to obtain only the best-quality wine. Natural malolactic fermentation in a temperature-controlled environment (20°C).
Other Notes
Refining: In the cement tanks until shipped to Colorado for 3-6 more months in neutral Slavonian Oak.
