History The origin of this variety is unknown. The owner of the company in which it was cultivated had no information on the origin of this vine, whose name was not found in contemporary or past ampelographic works. One can only assume that the name "Pugnitello" derives from the shape of its bunch, which is small and reminiscent of that of the hand closed in fist. It has also been hypothesized that this name was a deformation of "Pignatello", Sicilian grape variety synonymous with "Perricone": the results of the DNA analysis have however established that the "Pugnitello" and the "Perricone" are two different genetic entities.
Ampelographic features Leaf: medium size, medium long, pentagonal, five-lobed; the upper page is dark green, sometimes with slight anthocyanic pigmentation of the ribs; the outline of the flap is flat, that of the slightly involute lobes; the teeth are irregular, with convex sides, medium, very pronounced, with a wide base; the petiole sinus is closed with a lyre-shaped or V-shaped base, with a fund often limited by the ribs of the petiolar point; the upper lateral sinuses are very overlapping lobes with a U-shaped base, the lower ones are slightly overlapping lobes; the terminal lobes are flat, with the angle of the acute top; tomentosity is nothing or very light on the upper and lower pages; some creeping hairiness is present on the main ribs of the upper page; the ribs are protruding; the flap is bright, shiny. Cluster: small, very short (average length 8,3 cm, width 9,0), pyramid-shaped, simple, medium compact; the peduncle is thin, very short (average length 2.85 cm), slightly lignified. Berry: medium, uniform, rounded shape, with a circular cross-section; the peel is thick, coriaceous, of a uniform blue-black color, with an apparent navel, very pruinose; the flesh is colorless, juicy, consistent, with a particular taste of grass and pepper; the pedicel is short, green, and separates rather hard; the rim is evident, green in color; the brush is short and colored.
