Harvest for Mazzoni whites has begun…
Earlier this week, we received this dispatch from the Tenuta il Poggione in the heart of Tuscany where winemaker Alessandro Bindocci makes Mazzoni wines…
On Monday morning we were planning to begin the harvest of the white grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and Moscadello di Montalcino.
But at 5 a.m. there was a strong rainfall, which lasted until 6 a.m. It forced us to postpone the picking until tomorrow.
But this is not a problem. The rain does not create damage to the grapes.
The white grapes are at the right point of ripening. They are healthy and have the right ratio of acidity to sugars.
It’s still too early to begin picking the Vermentino grapes. We will surely have to wait another ten days.
