Aleatico

Limited plantings of this minor red wine variety are found in warmer areas of California and Australia. Aleatico is more commonly grown in the Apulia and Abruzzo regions of southern and central Italy, on the islands of Elba and Corsica and occasionally further north in the central regions of Umbria and Tuscany.

There a scattering of acres of Aleatico in California. Given many red wine drinkers aversion to sweet wines, Aleatico is likely to live in relative obscurity in North America.
