GRECO DI TUFO (10 pieces)

Rootstocks 1103P - K5BB - S04 - 140RU - 420A (We will send the graft carrier available at the time)

Grape variety probably originating in Greece. Cultivated mainly in the provinces of Avellino and Benevento and commonly known as Greco di Tufo.

  • Ampelographic characteristics: Bud apex globular, cottony, whitish green with yellowish edges. The leaves are medium-sized, orbicular, trilobate or pentalobate. Open U-shaped petiolar sinus. Slightly guttered flap with revolute lobes. Glabrate on the upper side, arachnoid with flocks of hairs on the lower side. Cluster: small or medium, compact, conical in shape with a wing that is highly developed to the point of forming a double cluster. Berry small in size, spheroidal, with an averagely pruinose, thin and tender skin, yellowish-grey colour covered with brownish spots.
  • Growing conditions: vine of medium vigour with erect vegetation. It adapts to deep, loose, fresh soils of volcanic origin. In soils rich in calcium carbonate it gives wines of greater finesse.
  • Cultivation and pruning: Being a vine of a certain vigour and with long internodes, it prefers long, rich pruning. Among the espalier forms, Guyot is preferred. Repeated green pruning and tying is necessary.
  • Sprouting time: Early.
  • Ripening time: Medium.
  • Production: Good production. To obtain wines of a certain value it is advisable to limit production.
  • Sensitivity to disease and adversity: not particularly sensitive to downy mildew and powdery mildew, while in rainy autumns it fears botrytis.
  • Oenological potential: golden-yellow coloured wine, pleasant, with intense floral fragrances, slightly tannic. Medium alcohol content and good fixed acidity. Greco di Tufo is normally vinified on its own even with short to medium ageing.
  • Clones in multiplication: Greco B. (di Tufo) VCR2, VCR5, VCR6, VCR11.

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.

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.

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.
