Taking a drive with Aldo Vaira to check on the progress of flowering in the vineyards . . .

Looking from the Baudana vineyard in Serralunga towards Castiglione Falleto and way in the back towards the Castle La Volta in Barolo.


Just the beginning of flowering on a nebbiolo vine


Some haven't even opened up yet.


And more . . .

Steep vineyards in Sinnio (right outside the Barolo confines near Serralunga)


In the old days, these Sinnio vineyards used to be able to be labeled as Barolo and from what I have heard, lots of the older producers sourced grapes here.


Looking down the hill from the top of the Sinnio vineyard.

No comments:

Out and about yesterday and these were some of the wines that were tasting amazing . . .
