The red grape variety comes from Italy
, Despite apparently suggestive synonyms or morphological
or name similarities not to the varieties Sangiovese
(Morellino) or Morellino del Valdarno
be confused. According to 2008 DNA analysis
exists between Morellino del Casentino and Sangiovese Parent-offspring relationship
(but the more likely parent is Sangiovese). The variety was used earlier in the Tuscany
grown, but has no meaning today.
