History Franconia is a red berry with uncertain origins, based on two hypotheses, both outside the Italian territory. It is also known by the names of Blaufrankisch and Limberg. Both hypotheses involve both Croatia and Austria. In the first hypothesis it is referred to its second synonym for the city of Limberg, in the second case to the upper valley of the Lower, locally called Franken, which translated into Italian became Franconia. For the first thesis there is, however, a lack of ampelographic quotes, which refer to only the twentieth century. For the Austrian hypothesis, however, it does not have the consolation of the German name Blaufränkisch where the suffix blau refers to the blue berry but the term frankisch was used in the late Middle Ages to indicate the foreign grapes while the indigenous were indicated by the term heunisch. In Austria, however, the vine is very widespread, and it seems that its introduction into Italy and later in France began in 1879. In Italy it is limited to the area of ​​Levico, Trentino, and to the plateau of Tagliamento, Cervignano and Palmanova in Friuli.
