Grape harvest has begun in Italy!
Even thought late rains and a cold spring have delayed the harvest with respect to previous years, most are predicting a great vintage for 2013.
They began harvesting grapes in southern Italy a week ago and some have begun this week to pick white grapes in central Italy.
At the Tenuta Il Poggione, where the grapes for the Mazzoni Super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese and Merlot are grown, harvest is still a few weeks away.
But the fruit and the conditions are looking great.
Stay tuned for more harvest updates from Mazzoni!
