History Today it is cultivated throughout the center of Italy with the synonyms of Black Caccione, Dog Grapes, Uva merla and Tindiloro. But its territory is certainly Tuscany for which you have the first historical testimonies that speak of the canaiola grape, a term that has given rise to two different theories in the 14th century; One wants the term to derive from the August canopy and its ripening period, the other for the bitter taste that recalls the pink canine due to the bitter flavor. The first to mention the vine was De Crescenzi, which speaks about it around 1300, also spelling out the Latin term dies caniculares, which suggests that the vine was already known by the Romans even though no cronist of the time ever mentioned it directly.
