The Spergola grape owes its name to the fact that the main clusters are always accompanied by a smaller cluster, it has been present in the region of Emilia-Romagna, in the zone of the Colli di Scandiano and Canossa since the 15th century. Although in recent years it has been almost forgotten, or in other cases confused with Sauvignon, it is now coming back.
The Spergola is a variety that seemed doomed to extinction, but some sensible winemaker have managed to save it using ungrafted vine dating back before the phylloxera, a pest of grapevines worldwide.
Spergola has small, white berries with waxy, greenish yellow coloured skin. The bunch is pyramidal, winged, medium dense.
The Spergola grape produces a wine with a straw yellow color and pale greenish highlights. The nose is characterised by floral and fruity notes of green apple. The palate is fresh, balanced and good persistence.
