In these days of beautiful weather, we are picking the Merlot grapes (photo 1) we will be using for our Rosso di Toscana. The grapes are healthy and ripe (photo 2), and we expect very high quality for the wine to come. The weather is still good, warm and sunny, with temperatures reaching 30°C (86°F) during the day and dropping down to 15-16°C (59-61°F) at night: this difference between day and night is perfect for the continued ripening of the grapes.
