Weather report 2010 Brunello: optimal conditions for ripening

Brunello 2010

28/30° C (82/86° F) with minimums of 17° C (63° F). The humidity has disappeared (thanks to the sunset wind). This weather situation is optimal for the vineyards as they complete the ripening or "invaiatura" meaning the "veraison". The demonstration of this is also the new vegetation that continues to develop and so we are forced to pass through the vineyards again to trim.

We have now finished the pruning of the vineyards in the central part of our estate and so we now move to the Vigna Paganelli, whose Sangiovese is utilized for our "Riserve" or Brunello di Montalcino "reserve", the top cru.
