Harvest 2017

Posted by on December 23, 2017 in News-en | Comments

End of March and beginning of April warmth above average have given rise to the buds well in advance but then to be faced with a ‘cold wave from mid to late April very dangerous, fortunately in Sanlorenzo temperatures did not go below zero and the shoots they are saved.

The vines recovered quickly thanks to the heat of the month of May and the complete lack of rains.
May 25 start of flowering.
During the months of June, there was no rainfall in July and the heat was above average for many days, the plants adapted to this trend, they held up well the drought and the heat.

Everything seemed to be good but a strong hail on 26th of July threatened to jeopardize the harvest, fortunately it was violent but it did not last long, the leaves suffered great damage but the grapes only partially and with the heat and drought of August they are completely annoyed.

Beginning of 10th of August.
 A little rain in August and early September restored balance and we started towards the harvest that was in line with the other years at the beginning of October.
A complicated vintage but the vines have responded well to the many attentions, the grapes and consequently the wine is rich and balanced, this will also be an excellent Brunello Bramante.
Harvest date 5 and 6 October
