Seasonal trend 2021
The health of the plants was not threatened by fungal diseases (powdery mildew or leaf blight). The summer was dry with only sporadic rain in August, but the reserves of water accumulated in spring prevented the vines from suffering drought. Summer temperatures were generally within the norm without excessive heatwaves.
From late August, the temperatures remained high during the day but dropped considerably during the night. This significant temperature variation resulted in full maturation of the fruit. Harvesting periods were similar to those in recent years, with the Sangiovese harvest starting around 20th September and ending after a month.
