The double pruning on Sangiovese based on pre-pruning and finishing in March, April and May applied over three years, induced a postponement of phenological phases, with repercussions on the vine vegetative and berry growth trends, with greater effects, according to the delay in the time of hand follow up during the season. The phenological development, the canopy and berry growth of Sangiovese, subjected to the three different finishing dates for the final pruning, were recorded during three years (2014-2016) and related to day of the year (DOY) and seasonal heat accumulation (growing degree days, GDD). A sigmoid growth model with high coefficient determination (R2 between 0.96 and 0.99), described shoot elongation and herbaceous berry growth, showing a temporal and thermal shift according to the finishing times. Despite the chronological delay, the vines revealed similar thermal necessities. Leaf area evolution of April and May finished vines showed 2 steps: a slow initial development followed by a rapid growth phase (91- 97cm2/GDD) beginning when shoots reached 7–10 leaves. GDD allowed to obtain simple models of vegetative development and berry growth of Sangiovese vines based on thermal evolution.
