Coldiretti brings the grapes from Italy to the fair

Liguria couldn’t fail to have its indigenous vines on whose terraced vineyards Ormeasco is planted, from which a red wine known since the 1930s is obtained. 0The Malvasia del Chianti is a typical Tuscan product of Mediterranean origin – continues Coldiretti – which has great versatility, so much so that it can also be used in the Chianti blend to smooth out the roughness of Sangiovese.

Sangiovese, which instead is the main vine of Tuscany where declined in the different territories it gives rise to the famous Tuscan brands from Chianti Classico to Brunello di Montalcino, from Nobile di Montepulciano to Morellino di Scansano (in this case the terroir is that of the Tuscan Maremma).

The Umbrian Sagrantino is instead considered by scholars to be the most tannic wine in the world, after a past in which farmers cultivated it to produce a passito wine used both in the ecclesiastical world and by the population, during the celebration of religious functions and holidays such as Easter. . A great ability to withstand adversity – underlines Coldiretti – and climatic changes distinguish the Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro vine, which is grown in the dry soils of the high plains and hills of Modena.

The Erbaluce di Caluso is, on the other hand, a small jewel of Piedmont which owes its name to the color that the berries take on in autumn, an intense yellow with golden reflections. Described as early as 1600, it is now used to produce a white wine, a sparkling wine and a very rare passito.

Bellone also prefers soils of volcanic origin, a vine from Lazio already known in Roman times, so much so that it was mentioned by Pliny the Elder with a fruity, mineral flavor and medium-large bunches. Passerina is grown in the Marches, which derives its curious name from the fact that sparrows are greedy for its small berries, rediscovered in recent years for the production of a highly appreciated white ».
