Nigheddu Polchinu

The red grape variety originates from Italy. Synonyms are Gonfaus, Nero di Bosa, Nieddu Polchino, Nieddu Polchinu, Plant de Vic98 N4 and Ripa. The parentage is unknown. It is possibly identical to the Spanish variety Gonfaus. The VIVC catalogue does not list Gonfaus as an independent variety, but only as a synonym for Nigheddu Polchinu. It is a purely female grape variety. The late-maturing vine is cultivated in small quantities in Sardinia. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
