Quagliano

The red grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Arciprete, Bouteillan, Bouteillan Noir (there is a French variety of this name), Cayau, Mentone, Moulas, Psalmody, Quagliana, Quagliano Nero, Quaian, Quajan, Qualiano, Sigoyer and Uva Antica Rosa. According to DNA analyses, she is a parent of the varieties Bombino Nero, Impigno and Nero di Troia. The variety was described in 1876 by Hermann Goethe (1837-1911) in his Handbuch der Ampelographie as a blue, dense-berry wine grape. The late ripening vine is susceptible to botrytis. It is cultivated exclusively in the province of Cuneo in Piedmont and is permitted in Colline Saluzzesi DOC wine. There, at the end of September, in the municipality of Costigliole Saluzzo, there is even a folk festival in honour of the variety. In 2016, nine hectares of vineyards were designated (statistics Kym Anderson).
