Common name in Switzerland (also Uva Americano) for the American vines planted after the phylloxera catastrophe, such as Clinton, Isabella, Noah and many Seibel vines. However, due to their intrusive strawberry aroma or foxton, they are used almost exclusively as table grapes, for grape juice and for the production of grappa. In the Swiss canton of Ticino, they are also known as a simple, acidic and low-alcohol red wine. Such wines are also marketed as Strawberry and in Italy as Fragolino. However, they may not be called quality wine and some of them may only be produced for own consumption. An Austrian speciality from American vines is the Uhudler from Burgenland.
