This year, we continue to have an anomalous seasonal progression. Here it has not rained as in other part of Tuscany and the temperatures are far above the season average. The maximum arrives at 35° C. and the minimum arrives at 19-21° C.
At the moment, the vines are well because in the soil there is still humidity that we seek to maintain by working the soil frequently and on the surface.
To help the vines consume less water, we have initiated much earlier than usual the pruning of the grapes in such a way as to lighten the quantity of grapes to thus help the vines to bring to ripening the grapes that have remained.
