“We began harvesting Monday,” writes Barone Pizzini CEO Silvano Brescianini in an email this week.

“This vintages will be remembered for a very hot July. But the plants are well balanced and they’ve maintained good fruit.”

“We need to hurry and work at full steam to obtain the necessary balance between sugar and acidity.”

“Low yields but very healthy bunches. It’s too early to determine the ultimate quality of the harvest but I’m very optimistic.”
