Barolo 2017

As a result of COVID19 we were very sadly unable to make our regular trip to Piedmont in October 2020. However, we are fortunate to be able to share the thoughts of some of the winemakers themselves and also of our suppliers who are on the ground tasting this vintage and speaking to the growers on a daily basis.

2017 will be remembered as the driest and hottest vintage on record in Italy and, as we know, heat and excessively dry weather are the biggest challenges for winemakers today. However, despite what has been written, 2017 in Piedmont has not been any hotter than other recent vintages. The key difference has been the amount of water, 350 mm compared to an annual norm of 680 mm, thus defining 2017 as dry year rather than a hot one. It was a year that would fully focus the minds and skills of the growers. As Walter Speller from Jancis Robinson so brilliantly puts it: “for many reasons 2017 is extraordinary, not least because just looking at the weather data no longer gives a clue to what to expect in the glass later on”. “The 2017 Barolos”, he says, display “a freshness and elegance that defy the vintage”.
 
The top growers in Piedmont know their vineyards as well as they know their children, sometimes better! They live and breathe them, and this intimate knowledge goes back generations, gifting them the understanding of how to handle them in extremes. Climate change is not new, 2003 set the benchmark for understanding drought and heat. Although two very different vintages, this knowledge and an increased investment in the wineries and vineyards have allowed the 2017s to flourish. 2017 is not a homogenous vintage, if you are selective you will be handsomely rewarded.
 
“In tasting, the 2017s are mid-weight Barolos with the classic structure of Nebbiolo. They are often intensely aromatic. Acids and tannins are prominent in many wines. The fruit profiles are ripe, often distinctly red-toned, but not cooked or over-ripe. Perhaps most importantly, the 2017 Barolos are very true to site, which is always a concern with vintages marked by warm weather. The best 2017s are exceptionally polished, vivid and flat-out delicious. If tasted blind, my guess is that few people would identify the wines as coming from a hot and very dry year."
Antonio Galloni Vinous February 2021


A snapshot of the vintage

The winter was relatively mild, as was the spring, but also rainy, which accelerated the vegetative growth. April was characterised by a sharp frost on the 14th which damaged vines positioned on the northern facing or lower parts of the slopes. From May onwards the weather was consistently hot, dry and sunny, and a period of nearly four months of 30°C days with little rain ensued. However, unlike 2000, 2003 and 2007, the nights were very fresh which tempered the hot growing season and gave a healthy crop, with almost no treatments needed. At the end of July and beginning of September some welcome rainfall revived the vines and temperatures dropped. An early harvest began in September and October, with some picking a full three weeks earlier than normal, from the 18th September in the warmer locations of Verduno, La Morra and Barolo. The higher vineyards with poorer soils, Castiglione Falletto, Monforte and Serralunga d’Alba could afford to hang on until the week of 25th Sept through into October.

What were the results?

The weather from the end of July into September saved the vintage. The cooler days and nights imparted good natural acidities and preserved freshness in the Nebbiolo. This helped develop and finesse the fruit profile and its aromatics. Finally, it allowed the fruit tannins to ripen naturally, and while they are present and provide structure, they are not harsh. These wines should also age well.

The Langhe has amazing water-retentive marine soils that have helped the vines survive the dry hot summer of 2017, as a result the vineyards containing more clay generally did better. Gianluca Grasso, of Elio Grasso, told us that, ‘the older vines (Chiniera and Casa Maté) which are over 40 years old, had roots deep enough to provide them with water from the snow during the wintertime’. It is clear in 2017 that the old vines had a clear advantage: their roots reaching deep in the soils for small amounts of water and essential minerals. This has given many of the 2017s a heighted sense of salinity and minerality.



Canopy management was key. Growers choose to keep more leaves on the vines to shade, cool and protect the fruit. Barely any bunch thinning took place, which helped regulate and slow down grape growth. They also had a lot more vegetation in the rows to interrupt the sun’s reflection and to maintain fresher temperatures in the vines. Hail nets had also been left out in many places, providing additional shade.

Despite the early vintage, the vegetative cycle was around 185-190 days in 2017. This is much longer than other hot vintages where it has been around 170 days. Gianluca Grasso also gave us this example from the growing season at Elio Grasso: “The vegetation cycle (for 2017) was 15 days shorter than 2016. I want to give you an example: for the classic vintages (as 2010-2013-2016-2019) the duration of the cycle (from bud break to harvest time) is about 200 days, for the early harvest (2011-2015) it was about 175 days and for the 2017 we were at 185 days so not so far from a classic vintage”.

David Berry Green, one of our suppliers who has helped us with this vintage insight said, “There was a need to pick early, pump over rather than submerge the cap (so less extraction) and limit the time in oak where necessary. To respect the fruit integrity and capture the vintage character. So, from good producers there is freshness and an almost Pinot, cassis perfume and delicacy. Pretty, red rose wines but with grip and charm, a perfect follow-up in the wake of the more ‘serious’ 2016s. As a result, 2017 is much more energetic than 2011, 2007, 2003, 1997, 1995….not far from 2001 perhaps?”

Gianluca from E Grasso also said, “Regarding the style, both [of our] Barolos (they were bottled 2 months ago) are really a surprise also for me. The wines are concentrated, with first aromas of fruit, good acidity and complexity. I tasted the wines blind and the impression is to have another very good vintage, with an evident classic style’.

As Galloni sums up in his recently publish article, “2017 Barolos are not rich or opulent wines, like the 2003s, 2007s or 2011s. Rather, they are mid-weight, nervy Barolos that are reminiscent of the 2015s in feel, with edgy tannins that recall the 2005s, and, in most cases, a great deal of site expression, as readers would expect to see in a more ‘classic’ vintage. The finest 2017s are distinguished by suave, polished tannins that are inside a core of fruit rather than on the outside…There is plenty to like in the 2017s. Readers who stick with the top names won’t be disappointed, but there are quite a few newer producers who excelled too."

    The 2017 Barolo Le Vigne is rich, pliant and so expressive. Even so, I imagine it will need a few years to open up fully. Bright red fruit, rose petal, blood orange and spice give the 2017 its distinctly red-toned profile. Elegant and translucent, the 2017 is very nicely balanced. Vineyard sources are Baudana, Villero, Vignane and Merli. Drink 2025-2037

    ?This is one of the most versatile wines to emerge from Italy in recent years. A bread and butter winner for Vietti, the 2017 Barolo Castiglione is sharply contoured and bright, with an excellent quality of fruit that can be described as crisp, tonic and rich. That extra concentration comes in part from the hot vintage; however, the greater Castiglione growing area delivers consistent quality and persistence above all else. Drink 2023-2038.

    The 2017 Barolo Aleste is a dark, ample wine. Dark cherry, plum, new leather, spice and licorice bring out darker tones of Nebbiolo. All the natural power of these parcels come through effortlessly. Best of all, the 2017 will drink well with minimal cellaring. Drink 2025-2037.

    The 2017 Barolo del Comune di Verduno is an absolutely gorgeous wine. This is the first vintage in which the Barolo 'classico' becomes a Barolo del Comune di Verduno, in other words, a wine only from Verduno. Pliant and deep, the 2017 is striking right out of the gate. A wine of tremendous balance, the 2017 is a total pleasure to taste. Today the flavors are naturally quite primary, but there is so much to like. Bright red berry fruit, blood orange and spice punctuate the finish. Vineyard sites are Rivarocca, plus smaller pieces from Pisapola, Campasso, Rocche dell'Olmo and Boscato. Drink 2024 - 2037.

    Vietti's 2017 Barolo Lazzarito is absolutely gorgeous. Whatever the challenges of the growing season, they appear to have been no problem here. More than anything else, the Lazzarito impresses with its magnificent depth and stature. Super-ripe red fruit, white pepper, mint, tobacco, cured meat, spice and rose petal open gradually with time in the glass. I would not be in a rush to open bottles anytime soon.

    A release of 8,760 bottles, the Vietti 2017 Barolo Lazzarito draws its fruit from Serralunga d'Alba and reveals a luminous garnet color. Compared to some of the others in this portfolio, the wine takes a little longer to open and express itself. It does, however, unfold to dark cherry, redcurrant, grilled herb, iron ore and candied orange peel. You need to give your glass a few extra vigorous swirls. Those rusty mineral notes build in intensity and drive the wine's medium-long finish. Drink 2024-2045.

    The 2017 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione shows all the signatures of this site, all turned up to the maximum. I am not sure I have ever tasted a Vietti Castiglione with this much heft. Super-ripe dark red fruit, rose petal, mocha, dried herbs and menthol all build in an ample, resonant Barolo.

    Vietti's mighty 2017 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is extremely polished and sharp, showing the smallest details with microscope-like precision in this release of 3,512 bottles. Tart cherry fruit segues to spice, tarry smoke, licorice and a chiseled sense of minerality that adds ample volume and considerable focus. The wine displays alternating moments of dryness, with layers of cherry sweetness, and all this movement adds to the fluid, ever-changing nature of the bouquet. Vintage after vintage, this wine continues to push the boundaries for Barolo made in Castiglione Falletto. Drink 2024 - 2048.

    Grasso's 2017 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is fabulous. In fact, the Gavarini is easily one of the wines of the vintage because it retains all of its classic signatures, which is also the sign of a first-class vineyard. Bright and vibrant in the glass, the Gavarini pulses with energy. Crushed red flowers, mint, chalk, white pepper, cinnamon and orange peel give the 2017 a super-classic Nebbiolo profile, as expressed in a relatively high-altitude site. The precision and finesse of the tannins - so hard to find in 2017- elevates the Gavarini into the realm of the sublime. Drink 2025-2042.

    Bruno was a trailblazer who championed single vineyard bottlings. It is thanks to him that the top vineyards in the region are now celebrated worldwide. The Falletto vineyard is located the prestigious village of Serralunga and the wines it produces are something of a masterpiece. The 2017 is generous yet fresh, with an enthralling earthy complexity of fresh truffles and balsamic notes. It is impeccable and will last decades

    The 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè is a dark, mysterious wine. Black cherry, menthol, tobacco, licorice, spice, new leather and pine meld together in a super-classic expression of Ginestra. Deep, rich and enveloping, the 2017 is so impressive in the early going. Here, too, the finesse of the tannins is remarkable. Drink 2025-2042.

    Goedhuis, April 2021

    This 2017 Barolo certainly does not disappoint. Mineral notes sit atop sour cherry, bright pomegranate, and dry flowers. Everything is held perfectly in place by the firm, grippy tannins and lithe acidity. It is an undeniably good Barolo that will taste incredible from the outset, but it also has decades of cellaring potential.
