Mammolo

The red grape variety originates from Italy. The name derives from the characteristic violet aroma (mammole = violet) of the wine. Synonyms grouped alphabetically by country are Broumest (France); Duraguzza, Mammola, Mammoli, Mammolo Asciutta, Mammolo Fiorentino, Mammolo di Montepulciano, Mammolone di Lucca, Mammolo Grosso, Mammolo Minuto, Mammolo Nero, Mammolo Normale, Mammolo Piccola Rosso Nero, Mammolo Piccolo, Mammolo Pratese, Mammolo Rosso, Mammolo Rosso Tondo, Mammolo Serrato, Mammolo Sgrigliolante, Mammolo Tondo, Mammolo Toscano (Italy); Muntanaccia, Muntanaccio, Muntanacciu, Malvasia Montanaccio, Schiorello, Schiuchitajolo, Sciaccarello, Sciaccarello Nero, Sciaccarellu (Corsica). It must not be confused with the Barbera or Perricone varieties, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2010 (with 34 DNA markers), it comes from a presumably natural cross between Boggione Rosso x Uva delle Vecchie. Direct descendants of the variety through natural crosses are Biancone di Portoferraio, Caloria, Colombana Nera and Pollera Nera.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
