History The term "Vernaccia" seems to come from Latin "ver", Primavera, or "vitis vernacula", or "home", as reported by Columella in his work "De re rustica". According to others, the term could be derived more recently and was traced back to the French-born Grenache vine or its Catalan Garnacha synonym. In fact, there are clear similarities between the latter vine and the Black Vernaccia cultivated in the Marches. In addition, from a genetic point of view, the origin of both the Cannonau Sardinian and the Red Friulano cultivated in Vicenza is now certain, although the three species continue to be distinctly cataloged in the National Register of Vine Varieties. Vernaccia nero is used mainly for the production of Vertaccia di Serrapetrona DOCG, red sparkling wine obtained with the peculiarity of drying about half (40%) of the grapes and spraying after the assembly with wine obtained from unprocessed grapes.
