Grapes in Italy

"Dark and brooding, this intense red grape arrived in southern Italy centuries ago from Greece (the name is a corruption of ellenico, i.e., Hellenic). Grown now primarily in Basilicata and Campania, its wines are usually fiercely tannic, smoky and full of robust dark-berry flavors. They also age well—decades, for the best bottling."
