Between the end of May and the first ten days of June there are alternating precipitations; no rains in July. At the end of July, temperatures rise with peaks of 40 ° C, but the vineyards, due to the water reserves of the soil, have not suffered.

Achille Boroli: “The excellent quality level of our Barolo is given by the right amount of thinning and flaking.”
