Last night, I was awakened by a loud, incessant noise that I could hear outside my home.
I got up and opened a window to see what was going on: the north wind had begun to blow. It was the first time this year that you could feel it.
It’s a cold but dry wind. And it doesn’t bring humidity with it. Just the opposite: it keeps the grape bunches healthy and dry. Ideally, it will continue to blow.
The following photos were taken at sunrise this morning at 7:10 a.m., when the temperature was 12° C.
Today, we picked Merlot grapes that will be used in our Rosso di Toscana IGT and in our Mazzoni Rosso.
