Rain helps moderate the heat

TempChart8.2.16

Yesterday Montalcino, as well as other areas in Tuscany and Italy, were hit by bad weather that brought some rain. At Il Poggione, 12 millimetres of rain fell and together with the more abundant rain of other areas, relieved the high temperatures by a couple of degrees (from 33°C / 91°F of Sunday to the 31°C / 8°F of today, as shown in the photo). While slight, this decrease give us a little bit of much appreciated relief from the heat. Meanwhile, in the vineyards, veraison keeps going well.
