Light rains have continued this week, the first week of harvest in Franciacorta.
It’s not an ideal situation but as along as the rainfall is light, it doesn’t impede the work in the vineyards nor does it damage the fruit.
The good news is that continued cooler temperatures are ideal during harvest.
The fruit on the vines is in excellent condition and the cool weather helps the winemaker to preserve freshness in the future wine’s aromas.
Of course, we won’t know the results of the 2014 vintage until we begin to taste the wines.
Stay tuned: we’ll continue to post updates here as they arrive from the winery.
