Harvest Report 2011: Picking the Sangiovese for the Rosso di Montalcino

Grape harvest toscana

Today, 20 September, we have begun again to harvest the Sangiovese grapes with which we will make the Rosso di Montalcino.

This morning at 7:00 a.m., the low temperature was around 10° C. (50° F.). The high is rising but we will not exceed 23-23° C. (72-73° F.). From tomorrow, however there is a forecast of an increase in the temperatures.

The analytic data for the grapes are very good and now the extractable anthocyanin has risen to excellent levels to obtain analytically excellent wines also in terms of their color.
