Albaranzeulit Nero is a pink-colored grape variety, which is grown primarily in the Sardinia wine region and sporadically used in some blends.

Albaranzeuli Nero grapes

According to ampelographers, this pink-skinned variety was originally Spanish in origin and was made known when the island was ruled by the Crown of Aragon.

In the current DNA profiling, it has suggested that Albaranzeuli Nero originated on the island between the crossing of the red Sardinian grape – Giro and the table grape Molinera and also different from Molinara from the Veneto wine region.

Nevertheless, the DNA profiling also shows that the relationship between Albaranzeuli Nero and Giro or Albaranzeuli Bianco is not yet established.

According to history, like most of the varieties from Sardinia, Albaranzeuli Nero was brought in from 1323 – 1720.

The theory from ampelographers has resulted to the belief that was strengthened by its Spanish sounding name as well as its association to Albaranzeuli Bianco.
