Perricone is a red wine grape variety grown in western Sicily, known for its high acidity and characteristics of red berries, earth and herbs. It is most commonly used in blends with Nero d'Avola, adding depth and texture to the wine. Historically, Perricone was widely cultivated and exported across Europe as "Zucco Rosso" and used to make Ruby Marsala. However, the grape faced decline due to phylloxera and was mostly replaced by Nero d'Avola. Today, it is grown on a small scale in the north-western part of the island, where it thrives on elevated sites in the warm Mediterranean climate.
