Thinning out: the vine is a luxuriant plant. To produce high quality grapes it is necessary that each single plant should not have too high a production.
For this reason when the grape is still green the bunches are thinned out, eliminating excess and settling for a production of around 1 kilo per stock.
It should be borne in mind that too low a production is not necessarily a symptom of high quality.
In recent years there has been a trend towards lowering quantity, which has arrived at a point of boasting such very low levels as to go beyond all logic.
In this way unbalanced grapes are produced, of excessive concentration, from which “big” wines are made, striking, but undrinkable after the first glass.
