Unfortunately the 2017 wine vintage won't be very productive in most of North Italy. The sudden fall of temperatures in April and the consequent hailstorms made a lot of grapes fell prematurely from the vines, so certain areas as Franciacorta
will have a very very low production for this year as some producers have told us personally. So if you desire to have some bottles of Franciacorta wine
in your personal wine cellar for the next year you will have better equip yourself as soon as possible.
Here's the link to an article of the most famous Italian economic magazine "Il Sole 24 Ore" about this situation. http://www.ilsole24ore.com/art/notizie/2017-04-21/maltempo-coldiretti-danni-100-milioni-campi-151204.shtml?uuid=AE76OO9
