The winter of 2007-2008 was colder than the previous one. April was mild with warmer than average temperatures but May and June were both characterized by lower than average temperatures and more rainfall than usual. The rain during flowering significantly reduced the quantity of grapes on the vines. From the middle of June the weather changed to warm temperatures without rain until almost the middle of August when there was about a week of rain. In early September the temperature was high once again but with very good temperature fluctuation between night and day. In late September and early October several days of rain occurred. The reduced quantity of grapes in the vineyards aided regular maturation.
