Budding of the vine shoots
The Moscato vines are budding fast! As an early season variety it is indeed very sensitive to rising temperatures and begins to grow quickly. On the other hand, we still need to wait a little longer for Sangiovese. We are working the soil at a depth of about 20 cm around the new vines to slightly open the ground so that those vines will respond to the warming soil and produce new roots. We will continue this process approximately every 10 days until the summer heat arrives, so that the young vines produce as many roots as possible and can become autonomous for their water supply during the summer. We will cover the soil to limit the loss of water only once the summer heat arrives.
