10°C at 8.30 in the morning means around 6°C at night

After a month of high temperatures, cool air has finally arrived from the North Sea. I am happy because our Nebbiolo grapes have a real need for cool, and moreover the weather predictions are ensuring us that the sun will be a protagonist. Harvesting the Nebbiolo with the dew in the morning and the warm sun at noon puts me at ease and in a certain way reassures me. Soon we will start the second harvest of Nebbiolo grapes, which is the most difficult and complicated, but which allows us to produce a wine of great aromatic and tannic complexity.  We are keeping our fingers crossed…Nebbiolo season is about to begin!
