Why Emergency Irrigation Is Necessary In Montalcino

Here on our blog we have already treated the problem of emergency irrigation ("irrigazione di soccorso"). But we return to this topic in order to reiterate the necessity of inserting into the appellation regulations of the wines of Montalcino this practice. In vintages like this, with scarcity of rainfalls (and in the recent years, there have been others), in order to make the high quality that the area of production of Montalcino is accustomed to making, it becomes nearly indispensable to be able to have the possibility of irrigating the vineyards if necessary. Moreover, by now for years we have even further reduced the productions per hectare (with respect to the appellations regulations) for an ever greater research for quality that the global markets expect to find in the bottles of wines of Montalcino.
