Climate Overview 2011

After a bitter winter, the season opens with a pretty warm March, which is unusual for the seasonal average. Even the month of April has recorded exceptionally warm temperatures, with peak temperatures equal to 35°. June proves to be one of the most rainy months of the year, in spite of the temperatures, which persist above the seasonal average and give the first signs that an early harvesting is very likely to happen.
The third decade of July is unusually cold despite the season. August has registered a variable weather, yet without rainsfalls. Bad period of draught. An early harvesting for Prosecco grapes is ,therefore, definitely confirmed, while the red grapes remain on the plants until the middle of October, benefiting the optimum night and day temperature range; to the advantage of nose-flavours.

Thermal Summation: this value, expressed in Celsius degrees, shows the sum of differences between average dayly temperature and the so called “vine’s zero of vegetation”, which is equivalent to 12° for the vines. The values reported into the column “Thermal Summation”, show the thermal sum from the beginning of the year up to the relevant week of that same year; these values show the performance of seasonal temperatures.
WHAT: This graphic shows the data related to rainfalls, daytime and nighttime temperatures registered for every single vintage within the production area Montello and Asolo hills. (official statistics data provided by “C.e.c.a.t Institute”)
HOW: These data have been registered in the period between the third April’s week and the first September’s week, which is the most active and intense period of physiological activity for the vines, starting from the initial growth until the final maturation of the fruits right before harvesting, which usually takes place  in the month of September and/or October, depending from the grape variety.
