Finally some rain has arrived in Montalcino. This is the view from our office today (photo): definitely not an usual summer day, but after the warm temperatures and the lack of rain in the past few weeks, we are happy that it is raining. The first rain was on Wednesday night and then this morning it started around 11.30. According to the forecast it will go on until tonight; meanwhile the temperatures went down with highs around 23°C (73°f). From the beginning of next week the temperatures will rise again and the sun will be back, but this rain will help the grapes in their growing process.
