Greco (also known as Balsamina Bianca, Biancame, Greco Biondello, Greco Castellano, Greco delle Torre, Greco del Vesuvio, Greco di Gerace, Greco di Napoli, Greco di Tufo, Greco Maceratino, Greco Moneccio, Grecula, Grecu Niuru, Grieco, Gieco, Grecau, Montecchiese, Morbidella, Ragusano Bianco, Sambiase, and Verdicchio) is an Italian wine grape that may be of Greek origin. The name relates to both white (Greco Bianco) and black (Greco Nero) wine grape varieties. The Greco Bianco vine tends to mature very late in the winegrowing season. Greco is golden-grey in colour and contributes a deep colour to the wines. Greco Nero is the preferred grape over the Bianco version.
