The weather in Montalcino is still very good, with lows and highs above average. Last weekend, which was supposed to be rainy, was instead almost entirely sunny and warm. In the vineyard the vines are continuing to grow quickly.
For some of the vines, part of the grape is already set as you can see from the photo.
The vines have caught up from their slow growth earlier in the season thanks to the recent high temperatures and the humidity present in the soil. The fruit set stage is now aligned with the average of the last several years.
