Climate trend

2020 vintage began with mild temperatures and a rather dry winter, leading to early budding. Snowfall episodes during spring, especially at the end of April, slowed the growth of the shoots, restoring temporal equilibrium for the subsequent phenological phases. In May, during flowering, the plants had well-developed leaf walls. The dry summer triggered a conservative development of the vines thanks to which they did not show symptoms of water and thermal stress. The harvest began at the end of August, with a sunny and dry climate.
