Climate and harvest At the beginning of the season, the weather has been slightly problematic due to the continuous rains until July. In this phase, the cover-crops management has been pivotal to keep under control the humidity of the soil, thus avoiding the excessive swelling of the berries. From August on, the temperature has increased without reaching critical peaks, the sunlight intensity increased as well, and dry winds from inland begun to blow steadily. On August 15 the leaves stripping started as there was no more risk of sunburn on the grapes. The ripening of the grapes in the different vineyards has been homogeneous. The grapes were healthy and the total quantity of grapes picked has been slightly higher than in the 2012 vintage. The harvest began on September 24 and ended on October 4. The wine underwent regular fermentation, the alcohol content is moderated, the color is overall intense.
