- ... BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Higher temperature during the season is forcing growers in Central Italy to explore ways to reliably control vine yield and grape ripening, while maintaining grape composition. The most common approaches include altering winter pruning, shoot thinning (St), leaf removal and bunch thinning. These studies, however, rarely evaluated these practices in concert and over multiple se ...

- ... BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Climate change is advancing grape ripening and decoupling sugar and phenolic maturity, impacting wine typicity. The aim of this study was to test whether late leaf removal (LLR) under different watering regimes delayed harvest of two Spanish red cultivars in a semi‐arid and temperate‐warm climate. METHODS AND RESULTS: In two trials carried out in eastern Spain with the Bobal a ...
