A mild and rather wet winter was followed by an early, though slightly cool, spring. The summer was characterized by unusually high rainfalls and low temperatures, which delayed the ripening process. Late summer, however, saw an increase in temperatures, and San Polino avoided the last summer rains. Luck with the weather and rigorous selections of the grapes meant that we brought in an unexpectedly good harvest, even in this difficult year.
