'Vranac' is an autochthonous grape cultivar of Montenegro, being of significant importance for Montenegrin economy. Grapes of this cultivar have been used for the production of red wine of top quality, very appreciated on the domestic and foreign market. Clonal selection of 'Vranac' started in 2004. After conducting mass positive selection those genotypes with the best characteristics were selected. After virus testing procedure (ELISA, PCR, Indexing) five of them were included in further clonal selection. During the period 2007-2009, an ampelographic evaluation of clone candidates was performed, including mechanical analyses of the grape cluster and berry, uvometric research, yield and quality of grape and must. Obtained results showed significant variation of tested properties in selected master vines, which outperformed the average population of 'Vranac', in certain properties and characteristics.

'Vranac' has the most significant economical importance in Montenegro and presents a valuable and recognizable Montenegrin brand. This paper presents three year results (2010-2012) of experiments designed to study the effects of two rootstocks on grape and wine quality of 'Vranac'. Research was conducted on Ćemovsko field, subregion Podgorica on 'Vranac' on rootstocks '1103P' and '41B'. The aim of research was to determine the influence of rootstock on yield vine-1, number of bunches vine-1, bunch weight and on content of must (sugar content, pH and total acids). Wine quality parameters (alcohol, total dry extract, total polyphenols and anthocyanins) were also recorded. Results showed that 'Vranac' grafted on '1103P' produced lower yield vine-1, lighter bunches and higher content of sugar in must. Wine made of 'Vranac' on '1103P' had higher alcohol content and significantly higher values of total polyphenols (3.17 g L-1) and total anthocyanins (706.33 mg L-1). Based on sensory analysis, wines made of 'Vranac' on '1103P' was preferred. © 2016, International Society for Horticultural Science. All rights reserved.
