Neret di Saint-Vincent

The red grape variety originates from Italy. Synonyms are Neiret, Nerét, Nerét Gros, Neretto and Neyret. However, these are also used for many other independent grape varieties, so that confusions are frequent (see under Neretto). According to DNA analyses carried out in 2010, the variety comes from a presumably natural cross Mayolet x Roussin. Dr. José Vouillamoz came to a different conclusion in 2011, according to his analysis there is a parent-offspring relationship between Neret di Saint-Vincent and Rouge du Pays. The variety is allowed in the Aosta Valley in the DOC wines Arnad-Montjovet, Donnas, Enfer d'Arvier and Torrette. It is used as a blending partner to bring in color and alcohol. In 2016, 12 hectares of vines were designated under the Neyret name, with a declining trend (Kym Anderson).
