The week in Montalcino has ended well. The climate has held and we have not had rain. And the sun and wind are making the ripening of the grapes move forward.
Saturday we have finished the harvest of the Pinot Grigio with healthy and well-ripened grapes.
Around us on Sunday, there have been big storms with abundant precipitations and I think there was also damage to the crops.
The temperatures of the last days have been around 15-16° C. minimums and around 27-28° C. maximums.
Today, Monday, 8 September, we have begun the harvest of the Sangiovese grapes with which we will make our Rosè Lo Sbrancato.
The grapes are healthy. They are moving forward in their ripening but to make our top wines, Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino, we must wait.
