As predicted, rainy weather arrived in Montalcino today. So far, there has been less than one inch of rain, but strong winds are sweeping through the vineyards. Rain is overdue for the field beans and the grass that we planted in the vineyards two weeks ago. We also need rain for the crops we planted for the animals on the property (wheat and favino).
We are seeing increasingly autumnal weather in lower temperatures and the changing colors of the countryside. In the cellar the wines continue to perform malolactic fermentation while we carefully control all of the winemaking processes from our laboratory.
