Wine Review Report :

Last reviewed: 15 May, 2017
The small dwarf republic (61 km²) is located in north-eastern central Italy between the two regions of Emilia-Romagna and Marche. The vineyards cover 225 hectares. Most winegrowers deliver their grapes to the Consorzio Vini Tipici di San Marino. The wines are produced from the Moscato Bianco(Muscat Blanc) grape varieties, with the largest proportion of sweet sparkling wine, Sangiovese, Trebbiano (?), Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco(Pinot Blanc).

The red grape variety comes from Italy. There are more than 80 synonyms that testify to its probably great age and wide distribution, especially in Italy. Among the most important are Brunelletto, Brunello, Cacchiano, Calabrese, Cardisco, Cassano, Cordisio, Chiantino, Corinto Negro, Guarnacciola, Ingannacane, Lambrusco Mendoza, Lacrima, Liliano, Maglioppa, Montepulciano Primaticcio, Morellino, Morellino di Scansano, Negrello, Nelutcho, Nerello, Nerello Campotu, Nerino, Nerino Sanvicetro, Niella, Nielluccio, Primaticcio, Prugnolo Dolce, Prugnolo Gentile, Puttanella, Sangiogheto, Sangiovese dal Cannello Lungo, Sangiovese dal Cannello Lungo di Predappio,...

The red grape variety comes from France. The name is probably derived from the French word for blackbird (merle), because these birds like to nibble on the very sweet berries when fully ripe. However, the name can also be an allusion to the black-blue colouring of the berries similar to that of the bird. There are more than 60 synonyms, which testify the worldwide distribution. The most important are Alicante Noir, Begney, Bigney, Bigney Rouge, Bini, Black Alicante, Blue Merlot, Bordò, Cabernet del Cleto, Crabutet, Crabutet Noir, Crabutet Noir Merlau, Hebigney, Higney, Médoc Noir, Merlau, Merlot Black, Merlot Blue, Merlot Crni,...

Often used but not unique short name for the two red grape varieties Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Although they are closely related (the parents of Cabernet Sauvignon are Cabernet Franc x Sauvignon Blanc), it is not always clear which one is meant. Especially in Northern Italy, it is not clear for some DOC wines which variety or composition is included. As a rule, Cabernet Sauvignon is more likely to be meant, especially because it is simply more common. But Cabernet is confusingly also a synonym for the grape varieties Béquignol Noir and Carmenère.
