Areas of cultivation Greco Nero is cultivated predominantly in Calabria, in the provinces of Catanzaro and Crotone, where it is known as Grecu Niuru or Maglioccone (in the Bivongi area).
History Despite appearances, the name Greco is derived not from the variety's motherland, Greece, but rather from the word's use throughout the Middle Ages to describe ageworthy wines high in alcohol and sugar. However, over the centuries tastes and consequently wine styles have changed considerably, and now the variety is used to boost a handful of Calabria DOCs.
