May and June in the vineyard

IMG_5516During May and June, all the inflorescences more and more start to appear under the typical shape of a bunch, while the floral buttons remain well separated.
Gradually a real flowering takes shape, and where the floral buttons open up, they make the future bunches recognizable.
The phase of “allegagione” (fruit setting) – that is the initial phase of development of grapes – will allow to see their progressive growth, although still of a small size. Technically this stage is called “mignolatura” and the small grapes have a diameter of only 3 millimeters approximately .  Then, little by little the grapes begin their process of growth until July, when the bunch will assume its classic appearance and recognizable shape.
