Aglianico: Already grown in remote times in southern Italy, particularly in Campania, Basilicata and Apulia, this vine was apparently introduced by the Greeks at the time of the foundation of their colonies along the Tyrrhenian coast. There are several interpretations regarding its name. At first derived from the Greek Ellenico or Ellanico; another origin of the name could be that of Gaurano-Gauranico, which defined one of the Falerno varieties. Its spreading was a consequence of its renown, so that it finally became the most widespread vine in southern Italy.
