  • Seasonal Outcome The growing cycle began in the usual time frame, with dry weather in April and May. June was marked by cooler temperatures and a lack of rainfall. Summer saw a return to regular average temperture in July through mid-August, when a sudden heat wave raised temperatures over 40 degrees centigrade (140F) through the end of the month. A sun drenched September, with normal average temperatures allowed for a good harvest.

  • Seasonal Outcome The vine’s growth cycle started at the right time with particularly mild and dry weather in April and May. Sunny days in June were then followed by copious rainfall in mid-July, accompanied by a significant drop in temperature. August was fairly cool, but the region was then covered by an anti-cyclone weather pattern originating from Africa, which led to a spike in temperatures, reaching well above the average for the period and lasting for around two weeks, putting the vines under hydric stress and accelerating the ripening. September and October were sunny and dry with very hot temperatures.

After the second week of June the temperatures began to warm up, but dropped again in August, when cool nights became advantageous to quality, preserving the aromas and acidity in the grapes. The weather remained dry from mid-august through October, making for ideal harvest conditions.

  • Seasonal Outcome The spring start of the growing season was marked by significant rainfall, which provided abundant water reserves. The rainy phase continued through July, with particularly cool temperatures well below seasonal averages. After mid-July, the weather turned warm and dry, allowing the vines to benefit from the water reserves. Relatively cool night temperatures allowed for the development of aromatics and the synthesis of polyphenols, enhancing the overall quality of the grapes. Harvest took place under tranquil conditions, with sunny, dry and warm weather in September and October.

  • Seasonal Outcome The winter, with levels of precipitation above the seasonal average and quite mild temperatures, was followed by a very normal spring, in terms of both rainfalls and temperature. The months of May and June were marked by some rain, with pretty cool temperatures through mid July. The hail storm which took place in mid-August 15th struck only part of our vineyards, sparing our best quality grapes and resulting in only a slight decrease in production. Overall, each of the various growing phases of the vineyard took place slightly later than in previous years, including a two-week postponement of harvest to allow for optimal conditions.

  • Seasonal Outcome Due to a mild winter, the season was precocious with an anticipated flowering. Heavy rainfalls at the end of May and beginning of June enabled the filling of the water reserves in the soil and therefore avoided any negative consequences by the heat wave in mid-June. The harvest started about one week ahead of time and lasted even until mid October without any difficulties thanks to ideal weather conditions in the fall.
