Malvasia Nera di Brindisi

The red grape variety originates from Italy. Synonyms are Malvasia Negra, Malvasia Nera, Malvasia Nera di Bari, Malvasia Nera di Bitonto, Malvasia Nera di Lecce, Malvasia Nera di Trani and Malvasia Niura. It is one of the numerous mostly unrelated varieties with the name part Malvasia (see there). According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is a presumably natural cross between Malvasia Bianca Lunga x Negroamaro. It was found that the variety Malvasia Nera di Lecce, which had been considered independent until then, is identical. There are also morphological similarities with the variety Malvasia Nera di Basilicata. The medium to late ripening vine yields slightly aromatic red wines.
