Historical grape varieties of Italy | Classic

Throughout Italy, in addition to internationally known and appreciated grape varieties, numerous native (autochthonous) grape varieties are cultivated. Some of them, despite their value, have long been ignored and almost forgotten. Italian winemakers and wineries increasingly began to recover this treasure trove of vines in recent decades.

Among these autochthonous varieties are also some historic grape varieties that were previously overlooked and are therefore almost extinct today. Recent research has shown that these varieties have great potential, which has not yet been fully explored due to a lack of technology and study.

These include both red and white grape varieties, such as Pecorino or Vernaccia Nera. These grape varieties are of high quality and also have a high resistance to pests and diseases. Another plus is the fact that some of the 'forgotten' grape varieties (such as Garofanata) produce wines with less alcohol than, for example, the international grape variety Chardonnay - and with a comparable aroma. The Italian winemaking landscape is gradually revealing its secrets, and artisan winemakers are striving to make those secrets palatable. - Gerardo

´Tufilla´ Marche Passerina IGP 2020, Simone Capecci, Marken

Tufilla Marche Passerina IGP 2020


Simone Capecci, Marche

This original Adriatic white wine is made from the autochthonous Passerina grape variety: delicate straw-yellow color with golden accents. On the nose, subtle hints of tropical fruits, nuts and chamomile. The fine streak of acidity leads into the refined finish. - Gerardo [TS06/21]

"Nervous acidity makes the taste of the Tufilla pulsate. The single-varietal Passerina does not keep up with the Ciprea aromatically, but it certainly competes with it in its dynamism and the long spiciness in the finish." - Gambero Rosso

´Ciprea´ Offida Pecorino DOC 2020, Simone Capecci, Marken
Ciprea Offida Pecorino DOC 2020

Simone Capecci, Marche

Ciprea is the result of years of research and breeding of the local Pecorino variety: the delicate aromas are reminiscent of exotic fruits such as banana and pineapple. On the palate, it is excellently structured and supported by fine acidity. Simone Capecci's Ciprea sits longer on the fine lees and then matures in bottle for further refinement. A well-structured white wine with aging potential. 100% Pecorino. - Gerardo [TS06/21]

"Its olfactory secrets of yellow-fleshed peaches, anise notes and citrus tones seep through to the palate of exceptional aromatic intensity and tremendous spice in the finish." - Gambero Rosso

´Fonte Cupa´ Pecorino Colli Aprutini IGT 2021, Camillo Montori, Abruzzen
Fonte Cupa Pecorino Colli Aprutini IGT 2021

Camillo Montori, Abruzzo

The native mountain grape variety Pecorino gives rise to this unique white wine: fresh, straw-yellow color in the glass. The bouquet is floral and reminiscent of hawthorn and some banana. Balanced on the palate, with a subtle minerality and well-integrated acidity. - Gerardo

"Simply one of the best of the region is the Pecorino. It is necessary to know that Camillo Montori was the first to believe in the value of this autochthonous vine in this production zone. It imparts the characteristic, nervy bouquet; taste-wise, the result is a pleasing, but by no means banal white." - Gambero Rosso

´Chiodo´ Marche Bianco IGP 2019, Simone Capecci, Marken
Chiodo Marche Bianco IGP 2019

Simone Capecci, Marche

Chiodo means 'nail' and is due to the name of this ancient grape variety. Bright straw yellow with subtle greenish reflections in the glass. Immediately appealing aroma of hawthorn, chamomile and fresh grasses. On the palate, refreshing and discreet acidity, extremely tasty, always slender and fruity.

According to DNA analysis, the history of the autochthonous grape variety Garofanata dates back to 1870. It is an interesting, unique and absolutely pure grape variety, which is native only to the Marche region. According to recent studies, the grape variety could not be assigned a father, nor a mother, and yet it has persisted over the centuries. The latest project from the hand of Simone Capecci aims to replant this forgotten grape variety in the region. Like a nail that you hammer to fix something permanently. A great and original white wine - not only for DIY! - Gerardo [TS06/20]

´Mvria´ Offida Pecorino DOC 2016, Simone Capecci, Marken
Mvria Offida Pecorino DOC 2016

Simone Capecci, Marche

The Pecorino Mvria shows a straw yellow color with light golden reflections and varied brilliance. This Pecorino really lies in the glass and moves slowly, a sign of high consistency. The intense bouquet is very aromatic, mixing notes of herbs with a fruity touch of yellow fruit sage and ripe jujube. The palate is powerful and very pleasant, soft velvety and at the same time powerful. Persistent the finish. - Gerardo [TS06/17]
