Italian for vine cross. A wine made from Incrocio Manzoni grapes, for example, is made from one of Signor Manzoni’s many crosses of one vinifera variety with another. His Incrocio Manzoni 6.0.13, Riesling×Pinot Blanc, often known simply as Manzoni Bianco, is the most widely planted with 382 ha/943 acres in 2010, throughout Italy but especially in the south. Incrocio Manzoni 2.15 is Prosecco×Cabernet Sauvignon. Incrocio Terzi No 1 is a Barbera×Cabernet Franc cross grown in Lombardy.
