Of very ancient origin, introduced into Campania from Greece, they later spread to Basilicata and Apulia.
- Ampelographic characteristics: two different populations are generally cultivated, one in the Taurasi area and one in Vulture, but often their differential characteristics depend on the different environmental conditions. Bud open, cotton-like, green or bronze-yellow. Leaves: small to medium, pentagonal, trilobate or pentagonal with closed V-shaped petiolar sinus. Cluster small to medium, cylindrical, simple or winged, moderately compact. Small to medium-sized, spherical berry; pruinose skin. Taurasi differs from Vulture in its lower vigour, its cylindrical bunch with, at times, slight millerandage and its slightly smaller berry.
- Cultivation skills: a vine with good vigour, long, robust shoots with medium internodes and upright, balanced vegetation. In the classic growing areas at altitudes of 300-500 m above sea level, it prefers loose, well-exposed soils; in warmer areas it adapts to different types of terrain.
- Cultivation and pruning: in warm climates it adapts to all forms of cultivation and pruning; in the colder climates of the cultivation area counter-espalier forms are recommended, with well-proportioned shoots through careful green operations. These operations make it possible to avoid botrytis attacks on the bunches and to obtain good lignification of the shoots and a perfectly ripe product.
- Sprouting time: early.
- Ripening time: late.
- Production: medium and constant.
- Sensitivity to disease and adversity: sensitive to botrytis and sour rot in rainy and humid climates. Suffers from prolonged drought.
- Oenological potential: gives wine of intense ruby red colour, fresh, fruity flavour, with excellent aromatic and polyphenolic profile, full-bodied and harmonious. When aged, it acquires finesse, releasing delicate aromas so as to become an aristocratic wine at the highest level of classic Italian wines. Excellent anthocyanin content, structure and aromatic component represented by intense hints of ripe fruit, red fruits and phenol-leather. Suitable for long ageing.

RULES TO PLANT A VINEYARD
You must perform this operation always with dry soil
A) On arable land is generally sufficient to ripper + to plow
B) On planting soil is generally sufficient to plow with an escavator and to clean the old roots.
If the previous crop was a vineyard, it is a good idea to leave the soil fallow for at least three years (after plowing). This procedure represents a valid possibility of defence against soil nematodes.
2. SOIL FERTILIZATION
Use organics and if it is a reimplantation, use Calciumocyanamide.
This fertiliser has a protective effect on the soil and the crop, especially against fungi.
3.PROPAGATING GRAPE VINE CUTTINGS
The planting should be carried out in temperate soil. The grafting point should be 8-10 cm above ground. Avoid shaving the redices. As much as possible, put sand and/or peat in contact with the roots (the root fears asphyxiation, while it needs a micro-oxygenation). Never fertilize in a localized manner (near the roots). Never water the rooted cuttings before summer.
When sprouting, the root apparatus must be heated as soon as possible. Work the soil repeatedly every 7/10 days at increasing depth (up to 20 cm), taking into account the moisture of the soil. When the apex of the bud starts to grow, it means that the root system is functioning. Only then can we stop watering the soil. Failure to grow due to access to water is often confused with a lack of water. This is why watering is used which is expensive, useless or even worse.
Protect vegetation from Peronospora. To each treatment add nitrogen (N) and iron (Fe) foliar fertilizer. Do not make any radical fertilization.
Continue with the defense against Peronospora by suspending the addition of the foliar fertilizer. This defense should be reinforced in late summer and should be continued until vegetation growth stops.
The September/October blight is destructive, to the point of bringing death to the whole plant (if it has not lignified). The rooted vine lacks clusters, so lignification occurs at the end of the vegetative cycle.
If incomprehensible anomalies persist after this procedure, contact an agronomist or the VCR Technical Service promptly before carrying out arbitrary procedures which may be unsuitable, expensive and/or worsening.
