Areas of cultivation The Albarola vine is widespread above all in Liguria in the western Ligurian Riviera up to Tuscany. It has remarkable similarities with the Genoese Bianchetta, and many consider it its synonym.
History In the past it was called Calcatella because of the characteristic clenched among the bunches, one next to the other, which was precisely calculated in informal language. The clear resemblance between the two vines, Bianchetta and Albarola, was already reported in the nineteenth century by De Maria, Gallesio and Leardi. Wales in particular thought it was originally from Liguria, but some suspect its Tuscan origin, where it is cultivated and included in some disciplinaries, even if its use is quantitatively much lower than the Ligurian Riviera. Dell'Olio Macaluso instead clearly indicates it in 1963 as a variety whose origin would be found in a large area from the Eastern Riviera to the Sarzanese then boundless in northern Tuscany. Its cultivation in the nineteenth century was however much more extensive than today, especially in the Riviera di Levante.
Ampelographic features Leaf: medium-sized, wider than long; orbicular and partly pentagonal form; predominantly whole (some slightly trilobed and in pentalobed suckers); narrow-licked petiole sinus and edges of the superimposed lobes; lateral sinuses superior to V not very evident in the few trilobed leaves; lower lateral sinuses practically absent. Top page dark green color, matte, glabra; lower page light green color, with arachnoid tomento, also diffused on the ribs. Flap predominantly flat, sometimes a bit 'bent to shower; plane lobes, sometimes a bit 'eaves; surface of the wavy-bulbous flap; main ribs on the lower protruding page, order 1-2-3, light green; those on the upper page stand out for the light green color. Main lobe terminating at right angles or nearly; slightly pronounced lateral teeth, rather convex, with a wide base. Cluster: of medium size (cm 16-20); compact; elongated cylindrical-conical shape, sometimes with a short wing; visible peduncle, herbaceous or semi-woody, thin. Grape: average size (12-18 mm); spheroid shape, tending to the ellipsoid, regular; persistent and prominent navel; circular, regular cross-section. Pruinose peel, yellowish green color, sometimes tending to golden, fairly regular color distribution; average thickness, soft consistency; juicy pulp, colorless juice of neutral soap. Pedicle of variable length (short and medium), of green color; clear look, green; medium-length brush, yellow color; detachment of the berry easily.
Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety The wine obtained from the albarola vine is straw-yellow in color with greenish reflections. On the palate it is herbaceous.
Notes Behavior with respect to grafting: it has shown good affinity with the various rootstocks used: once Rupestris du Lot, later largely replaced by Berl. x Rep. 420 A still dominant today, as well as with the Berl. x Rep. Kober 5BB of more recent introduction.
