Roviello is a white wine grape native to Italy. It is also called Roviello Bianco, though Grecomusc’ (or Grecomuscio) is the most commonly used name by locals.

Where grown: Campania, in the countryside around Taurasi, Passo di Mirabella and Bonito (AV). DOC areas do not exist.

Viticulture: Medium-small sized bunches and berries, with thick skin. It is an early-ripening variety.

Wine style: It is a very difficult variety in the cellar. It is an aromatic variety, so the wines are reminiscent of those made with Muscat or Gewiirztraminer, though less aromatic. Strong flint, almond, grass, and apple aromas and flavours, complicated by aromatic spices.
