By Giampaolo Zuliani
A landscape of vineyards shows itself to the eyes of a careful observer as a complex variety of interactions between natural elements and those artificially created. The work that the farmer-winemaker has been carrying out for centuries (the anthropization of the place) has produced the set of factors needed to carry out cultivation practices, thereby creating interaction with the current natural principles. These, on the other hand, have been remodelled and, sometimes, their shapes have been respectfully redesigned, and their natural dispositions have been forced for practical needs.
The perceived whole is the result of this microcosm of work carried out throughout the centuries in order to govern and bring to fruition its natural components.
The natural elements as a whole are made up of direct and reflected light. Consider the presence of bodies of water that increase and reinforce the reflection of colours transferred by the light itself, of arboreal elements, of orographic trends, the position and morphology of the soil.
