Groppello Gentile

The red grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Groppella, Groppello Comune, Groppello Fino, Groppellone, Groppello della Val di Non and Groppello Val di Non. Although synonyms or morphological similarities seem to indicate this, it should not be confused with the varieties Groppello dei Berici, Groppello di Mocasina, Groppello di Revò, Pignola Valtellinese (Groppello di Breganze) or Raboso Piave. The name Groppello or similar is used in Northern Italy to designate several independent grape varieties. The name is derived from "Gropo", which in dialect means "knot" after the appearance of the grapes. Groppello Gentile is the most widespread Groppello variety. It was already mentioned in 1596 by Andrea Bacci (1524-1600) in his famous seven-volume work "De naturali vinorum historia".
