Even the grapevine gets emotional

Nebbiolo vines in the Lirano zone

We are close to the arrival of spring and the weather is confirming it with the gift of truly warm and pleasant days. The grapevine, as happens every year, is awakening, activating and preparing for the work to come, as demonstrated by its classic “tears”. In this period the plant in fact generates a strong osmotic pressure which translates into an excretion of a sugar solution from the shoots that were cut during the pruning, which looks like a tear.

We like to think that the grapevine is becoming a man and is moved by the thought of its new birth.

The 2012 vintage has physiologically begun!
