Got to love those little hands!

Manine, 18th May 2015

The vines are growing upwards, anchoring themselves to the foliage wires with their tendrils. While the agronomical term is viticci, in Montalcino they are known as manine – little hands – since it’s as if the vines are clinging to the wires for support. We are very close to flowering here at Le Due Porte and the vineyards seem to be enjoying the benefits of the dire 2014 vintage. Onwards and upwards!
