Marketing - Agriculture / viticoltura
Italian term or phrase: a tendone
Per una maggiore comprensione inserisco la frase completa: "E’ uno dei vitigni più diffusi in Puglia ed è tipico della provincia di Lecce. Prodotto da numerosissime
aziende vitivinicole viene coltivato nella forma di alberello e cordone speronato, sempre più raramente a tendone."

overhead trellis
Explanation:
This is a general way of referring to "tendone" training systems. You might want to reformulate the entire phrase along the lines of:

(the vines) are bush-trained or cordon-trained and spur-pruned whereas overhead trellises are increasingly rare.
