Growing areas This vine is currently grown in the municipalities of Salerno, Ravello, Amalfi, Maiori and Minori, but also in Furore, Tramonti, Corbara and Positano where it is known by the name of Biancazita. It is therefore widespread almost exclusively throughout the Amalfi coast. It is also known as Biancatenera.
History The Ginestra vine has been present in Campania since 1825, when Acerbi mentioned it among the widespread species of vines around Naples.
Features ampelographic Leaf: medium-large, cuneiform or pentagonal, trilobed; the upper page is light green, with red ribs one third of the length; the lower page is rather fluffy, with slightly reddish and velvety ribs; the petiolar sinus is U-shaped, very open or open, sometimes with a tooth; the upper lateral sinuses are U-shaped with overlapping edges; the lower lateral sinuses are open V; the flap is usually bullous, wavy; the teeth are medium to straight sides. Cluster: medium-long, pyramidal conical, simple, compact, with short stalk, robust and partially lignified. Grape: medium, about 2.5 grams, uniform size, elliptical shape; the skin is yellow-green, slightly pruinose, with an apparent navel; the flesh is colorless, consistent, juicy, with a neutral taste; the pedicel is thin, medium, with difficult separation; the brush is green, short.
Features wine The Ginestra vine owes its name to the scent of its grapes, which makes it interesting from an enological point of view, as it favors the presence in the wines of floral hints that evolve with the aging notes of hydrocarbons, an element that makes it similar to Riesling. It also shows an excellent ability to accumulate sugars, also ensuring high levels of total acidity.
Notes Resistance to pests and other adversities: compared to the variety of control the "Ginestra" is more tolerant to botrytis, due to the more sparse bunch and the thicker skin of the berry. Both vines observed are on average tolerant to drought conditions.
