Most of the rainfall was distributed in spring; only in some plots there have been heavy precipitations in the summer. The integrated management of agronomic practices, from pruning to thinning to the choice of different harvesting moments, inspired by an eco-sustainable viticulture, has allowed us to have healthy and well-ripened grapes. The harvest was thus in line with the company quality objectives that are oriented to high quality productions. * (precipitation average calculated from the 2003 harvest and measured by SIAS, Sicilian Agrometeorological Service)
