Piedmont, 1985

1985 was an excellent Piedmont vintage across the entire region.

Despite a rather damp spring, a glorious summer lasted through the ripening period and the harvest, which saw cool nights preventing berries from becoming overripe. A large, early harvest of perfectly ripe, healthy grapes made it arguably the vintage of the decade. In fact, Barbera growers declared it the best vintage since the great 1947 vintage.
