Autumn was very rainy and quite cold. Winter was mild and not particularly rainy. Spring therefore continued with average temperatures and scarce rainfall. What characterized the summer of 2020 was the almost total absence of precipitation, with a total of about 30 mm. No particular vegetative difficulties of the plants were observed in this period, thanks to a careful management of the vineyards and soils. Finally, the month of October displayed all its typical characteristics: lower temperatures during the night, an alternation of rainy and sunny days, which however have allowed an end of the harvest with excellent grape quality.
