Climate trend: Spring begins sunny and warm, but in May the temperatures went lower than ever for the period and rains kept the vineyards pretty wet till the beginning of June, when start a very dry and hot season. Unfortunately on July 7th and 14th we had severe hail events in Musella and it destroyed the biggest part of grapes (70%) leaving some signs on the vine also. After valeriana and propoli cares, the plants were able to get to the end of the season, giving us a very good quality, for the little quantity left.
