The Maturano grape is an ancient autochthonal white variety of Lazio, originating from Val di Comino, recently rediscovered, and listed in the National register grapevine of varieties in 2010, together with the varieties Capolongo (white), Lecinaro (red), Pampanaro (white) and Rosciola (red).
These varieties have been recovered thanks to an Arsial (Regional Agency for Agricultural Development and Innovation in Lazio) project aimed at identifying the most qualified clones for vines already listed in the Regional register of grapevine varieties, to allow the development in the territory and promote their planting and growing. So little is known of this variety, and there are very few wine growers that grow it.
The Maturano’s berry is white, big, round with waxy, firm, deep yellow skin. Its bunch is medium, compact, sometimes winged, with a large, three-lobed or five-lobed leaf.
