The thunderstorms that have been bringing heavy showers in the Tuscan hinterlands in the last days have passed through leaving us almost unharmed: a few millimeters of rain have fallen without any damage for the vineyards or for the ripening of the grapes. Veraison proceeds quickly and day after day there are more and more bunches changing their color..
Meanwhile, through thinning we started to relieve the vines that had a larger quantity of grapes, compared to our standards.
Thinning is a precision job that our workers are doing to bring grapes to ripening in the best possible way. We keep saying that, fingers crossed, there are the conditions for 2016 to be a great vintage.
