Schioppettino

The red grape variety originates from the border region Italy (Gorizia)-Slovenia (Goricia). Originally, the red wine made from it was called so (scoppiettare = crackle or crackle - possibly because of the peppery taste). Synonyms are Pocalza, Poçalza, Pokalca, Pokalza, Ribolla Nera, Schiopetino, Schiopettino and Scoppiettino. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2011, it is not a colour mutation of the Ribolla Gialla variety. However, the parentage (parentage) of the variety is unknown. The medium to late ripening vine is susceptible to small berry and downy mildew. It yields dark-colored, tannic pepper, Veilchen und wilden Früchten.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
