Nerello Cappuccio

The red grape variety originates from Italy. Synonyms are Cassano, Castiglione, Lacrima, Mantiddatu Niuru, Nerello Cappuccio Mantellato, Marchesana, Nerello di S. Antonio, Nerello di San Antonio, Nerello Mantellato, Nirello Cappucio, Nirello Cappuccio, Niureddu, Niureddu Ammatiddatu, Niureddu Capucciu, Uva Antica Nera, Zagarese, Zuccheio Canella, Zuchero Carmella, and Zuchero et Cannella. Despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities, it must not be confused with the Castiglione, Frappato, Nerello Mascalese or Perricone varieties. The name cappuccio (hood) refers to the whitish coating that covers the grapes like a mantle (mantello) (hence also Nerello Cappuccio Mantellato). The medium-late ripening vine yields soft red wines with black fruit aromas.
