Sangiovese harvest for Rosè begins!

Yesterday we started the harvest of Sangiovese for our Rosè. The Sangiovese for our Rosè. comes from younger vineyards in our Estate, generally less than ten years old.  It was a sunny warm day and the grapes were healthy and perfectly ripe. Last night 17-20 mm (.7-.8 in.) of rain fell in our area (photo), so the harvest stopped and we will start again tomorrow. In recent weeks, since mid-August, we have had warm days, with a strong wind that dried the soil and the grapes. So last night’s rain, without any threat of hail, was a real godsend. In some moments rain is really very useful, and this was one of those.
