Last reviewed: 10 June, 2020

The region (ital. Veneto) is located in the northeast of Italy and borders on four other regions. These are Friuli-Venezia Giulia to the east, Trentino-Alto Adige and Lombardy to the west, and Emilia-Romagna to the south. The northern tip borders on Austria. The landscape and climate is also characterised by the 150 kilometres long Adriatic coast. The lush wine landscape was already cultivated by the Etruscans. Later, the Romans came and appreciated the ancient wine Raeticum, mentioned by Pliny the Elder (23-79), supposedly a precursor of...

Synonyms are Brepon, Brepon Molinaro, Breppon, Breppon Molinaro, Molinara Ciara, Molinara Rada, Molinara Rossa, Molinaro, Mulinara, Rossanella, Rossara, Uva del Mulino, Uva Salà and Uva Salata. The name (mill) is derived from the berries, which look like they have been dusted with flour. It must not be confused with the Molinera, which has a similar name. The late ripening vine is resistant to fungal diseases. It produces light red, acid-rich red wines with relatively low alcohol content, which are almost exclusively used as blends. The variety is mainly grown in the...
