The red grape variety originates from Italy. The parentage is unknown. Whether there are genetic links to the white varieties Mantonico Bianco or Montonico Bianco or the red varieties Gaglioppo, Magliocco Dolce or Nerello Cappuccio (all three with the synonym Mantonico Nero) is not known. In 2016, no stocks were reported under the name Mantonico Nero Inzenga (statistics Kym Anderson).
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
