Barbera and Croatina are the two most important grapevine varieties characterizing wines from several districts in North-West of Italy; they coexist on the hilly territories sited south of the Po river (historically known as “western-cispadana” area) where they are also blended together to obtain local wines such as Buttafuoco and Rosso Oltrepo Pavese in Lombardia, and Gutturnio in Emilia Romagna. Ervi is an intraspecific crossbreed between Barbera and Croatina performed in the ‘70s and selected over the last decades in order to improve some agronomical traits of both parents. The present study represents the first characterization of development, production and enological performance of the cv. Ervi in Lombardia and, more specifically, in the Oltrepo Pavese wine district. Long-term results related to a field-based assessment as well as the sensory profiling of wines produced at a micro scale are reported. When compared to Barbera and Croatina, Ervi shows improved productivity respect to Croatina and a better composition as compared to both its parents. Results recommend the introduction of the cv. Ervi in Lombardia for the production of high quality red wines.
