Negretto

The red grape variety originates from Italy. Synonyms are Negretta, Negrettino, Negrettino Bolognese and Negrettino Erioli. The parentage is unknown. It must not be confused with the varieties Uva Longanesi (Negretto Longanesi), Négrette or Tempranillo (Negretto), despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. The medium to late ripening vine is resistant to powdery mildew but susceptible to botrytis. It produces dark-coloured, but low-tannin red wines that should usually be drunk young. They are usually blended with the Barbera and Sangiovese varieties. However, the variety is also used as table grape. It is mainly cultivated in Emilia-Romagna. In 2016, 35 hectares of vineyards were reported with a strong downward trend (Kym Anderson).
