Inzolia Nera

The red grape variety originates from Italy. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2014 (De Lorenzis), Inzolia Nera comes from a presumably natural cross between Sangiovese x unknown partner. The white variety Inzolia is not a colour mutation (or vice versa). The presumably very old vine was already mentioned in 1696. In the VIVC catalogue, confusingly, a variety Insolia Nera is given as independent with the synonyms Anzonica Nera, Insolia Niura, Inzolia Nera and Inzolia Nero. The vine yields weakly coloured, spicy red wines, which are used as blends this. It is grown in small quantities in Sicily around the city of Trapani. However, no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
