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 wein.plus encyclopaedia is a comprehensive, well-researched reference work. Available anytime and anywhere, it has become an indispensable part of teaching, used by students and myself alike. Highly recommended!Dominik Trick
