Unfortunately, if you are unable to get a good portion of the root mass, the vine will likely die. You will have to dig about 2 or 3 feet away from the vine to get enough roots to ensure its survival. Another way to keep the vine would be to take a cutting from one of the new tips. This will set it back a few years, but will ensure that you can keep the vine in much younger state. I'm sorry to bring bad news, but this is a difficult situation to remedy.

Here is a link to articles on taking cuttings, which will be the only guarantee to keeping this vine alive for transplant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/propagation/cuttings/
