Grape Pics

Here is Barbera. Looks o.k. Typical spindly canes, smallish leaves, medium size bunches.
Here is the Dolcetto. Classic big bunches, moderate thinned crop. Looks good.
 Primitivo: nice, classic growth, differentially ripening away, again, nicely thinned
Oh my gosh, what the heck is this? This is the Aglianico, as of September 7th. The standard rule of thumb is 60 days to harvest from veraison. Looks like a November 15th harvest this year, just like on Mount Vulture.
