The Sgavetta vine is an authochthonal grape variety of Emilia-Romagna, whose earliest records of cultivation in the area between Modena and Reggio-Emilia date back to the 19th century.

The berry is black, medium, and spheroidal with very waxy, blue-black skin. Sgavetta has a medium pyramidal, elongated, often winged, very sparse cluster with a medium, pentagonal, five-lobed leaf. The Sgavetta grape has good vigor and time of average maturity. Its production is good and regular. Its wine is deep purple colored with an intense and vinous scent.
