In San Polo the flowering season proceeds swiftly, continuing to enchant with its beautiful colors, thanks to the light of the summer that lights up the leaves with their brilliant green; the favorable weather and the rain of last weekend have, in fact, given new impetus to the vegetation.
It is in this phase that the conveyance to the second pair of wires is carried out, i.e. the vine shoots are positioned inside the pairs of containment wires so that they are not damaged or even broken by the wind, and can continue to grow in orderly and equidistant way inside the row. This operation is essential to keep the season going in the best possible way: the well-positioned shoots guarantee a well-arranged vegetative wall, which benefits from a better microclimate and will be easier to manage during the subsequent stripping and thinning operations.
In a few days, if everything continues without unexpected events, we will approach the next phenological phase, the end of flowering, and we will be able to see the first berries which will then form the future bunches. It will then be the turn of the bunching of the shoots, an operation through which the tops of the plant which, becoming too long, are gently twisted along the threads, thus avoiding cutting them.
