Effect of early leaf removal on Sangiovese (Vitis vinifera L.) under thermal excess and drought conditions

The early defoliation of the fruiting area is a technique that offers considerable advantages both in relation to the quality of grapes and to pest control; on the other hand, when a very warm summer occurs, the risk of grape sunburn may increase. This paper reports the results of a pre-flowering defoliation trial carried out in the province of Arezzo (Italy) in 2017, an exceptionally hot and dry year. The results confirmed the validity of this technique in limiting yield while achieving a concurrent higher concentration of phenolic compounds without increasing the risk of burns and radiative damages of grapes.
