Krasnostop Zolotovsky

The red grape variety comes from Russia. Synonyms are Cherny Vinny, Krasnostop and Krasnostop Anapsky. Despite the fact that it seems to be a synonym, it should not be confused with the variety Plechistik (Cherny Vinny). The medium ripening vine is resistant to winter frost, but susceptible to downy mildew. It produces red wines rich in tannins, acids and alcohol with aromas of plums, red currants and green pepper. The old variety was first mentioned in 1814. Today it is cultivated in the Rostov region along the Don River and Krasnodar in the southwest of the country. The cultivated area in 2010 was 562 hectares
