Chores in the vineyard

Once the leaves have been lost, start pruning the vines with the foresight to cut the cut shoots (sarments) in alternate rows, so as to be able to start, without hindering the raking of the shoots themselves, the organic fertilization of the vineyard. In order to incorporate the fertilizer into the soil, it is advisable to carry out a superficial tillage that does not harm the young "beards" that draw more nourishment from the soil. It is advisable to treat the pruned vineyards with Bordeaux mixture in order to cauterize (heal) the wounds inflicted with the cuts (always check the sharpness of scissors and saws).

Chores in the cellar

In November the level of the barrels and vats is checked, as well as the withering trend of the vinsanto grapes, cleaning the bunches of dry or damaged grapes. We recommend tasting new wines in order to evaluate and correct color, flavor and aromas.
