Abbuto is red wine grape native to Italy.
Where grown: Lazio: nowadays, it is cultivated mainly in the province of Latina along the south- eastern coast of Lazio (near Formia, Sperlonga, and Gaeta), and in the province of Frosinone. It may be found in some IGT wines (Frusinate or Lazio).
Viticulture: Medium-large sized bunches and berries. Average production (also poor) and inconstant. It is resistant to oïdium and (less so) to peronospora (downy mildew) as well as to drought, it is very sensitive to spring frosts due to early flowering.
Wine style: The wine is bright ruby-red, with fresh red berry and floral aromas. Full-bodied, with good acidity levels, its tannins require patience.
