Piedmont, 1986

1986 was an irregular Piedmont vintage.

Barolo suffered the worst with a catastrophic spring hailstorm that forced many growers to write off the vintage. The summer was humid with plenty of rain that tested winemakers to the limit, but there was some solace from a reasonably bright and dry late summer, final ripening and through the harvest. Barbaresco suffered problems from dilution and lacked intensity, though certain growers had some success.
