From Gianni’s Facebook, posted earlier this week…
Now we just need the tramontana [the north wind] and some sunny days and we’ll have a great harvest.
As I’m writing this, I’m crossing my fingers and everything else I can!
Look at the fantastic Negroamaro [in the photo] from Filippi in Salice Salentino! It’s the result of a perfect pairing of clone and rootstock. The funny thing is that this happened by chance! And it shows that we still have much work to do in understanding how to get the best from this grape variety.
