Keywords: grapevine cultivar characterization clonal selection canopy management training system vineyard soil management grapevine adaptation strategies to climate change grape ripening

My main research activities in viticulture include vine training systems and related physiology, management techniques (cluster thinning, leaf removal and  trimming during ripening ) to improve grape quality and cluster morphology and studied in association with molecular approach,  vine mechanical pruning and harvesting, grape phenology, grapevine breeding and clonal selection, bioclimatic indices and cultivation-site  selection, canopy architecture and related solar energy interception, cultivar and clonal  identification through ampelography, ampelometrics and molecular biology techniques. Recently researches to study the effects and grapevine adaptation strategies to climate changes has been developed. These and other research interests are to be found in more than 100 technical and scientific papers.
