Weather Conditions

Frost and hail marred the growing season, and uneven ripening caused further problems. After a wet June, the summer was dry until the end of August, when heavy rain returned. Better weather in September saved the year from complete disaster, but the wines lack acidity and this is unlikely to be a vintage year.
