Shesh i Zi

The red grape variety (also Seshi Zi, Shesh) comes from Albania; the name means "black shesh". It is named after the municipality of Shesh west of Tirana. Despite morphological She may not share similarities with the varieties Serina e Zeze or mistakenly suspected as a descendant Syrah be confused. The parentage is unknown. Whether a connection to the white variety Shesh i Bardhë is not known. The late ripening vine produces a ruby red, mild wine with aromas of plums, apples and forest fruits. It is cultivated west of Tirana, where together with the Shesh i Bardhë it makes up around one third of the Albanian population. In 2010, however, no stock was reported (Kym Anderson ).
