Grapevine breeding has been actively conducted in Italy since the end of the nineteenth century, producing approximately 800 varieties (rootstocks, wine and table grapes). The major Italian rootstock, wine and table grape breeders are listed, including the main varieties they obtained, such as Pirovano (cv. Italia), Paulsen (1103P rootstock), Dalmasso (cv. Albarossa), Ruggeri (140Ru rootstock), Prosperi (cv. Clotilde Prosperi), Manzoni (cv. Manzoni bianco), Terzi (cv. Incrocio Terzi 1) and Rigotti (cv. Rebo). Current breeding programs to obtain new rootstocks, new disease-resistant varieties and crossings within Vitis vinifera cvs. to improve some technological traits are described.

Abstract

Grapevine breeding has been actively conducted in Italy since the end of the nineteenth century, producing approximately 800 varieties (rootstocks, wine and table grapes). The major Italian rootstock, wine and table grape breeders are listed, including the main varieties they obtained, such as Pirovano (cv. Italia), Paulsen (1103P rootstock), Dalmasso (cv. Albarossa), Ruggeri (140Ru rootstock), Prosperi (cv. Clotilde Prosperi), Manzoni (cv. Manzoni bianco), Terzi (cv. Incrocio Terzi 1) and Rigotti (cv. Rebo). Current breeding programs to obtain new rootstocks, new disease-resistant varieties and crossings within Vitis vinifera cvs. to improve some technological traits are described.
