For another Italian wine grape also known as Cococciola, see Bombino bianco.

Cococciola is a white Italian wine grape variety that is one of the few Italian grape varieties to have its number of plantings increase in the late 20th century while measures to combat Europe's wine lake and the general decline of viticulture saw the numbers of many varieties decline. Today, Cococciola is a permitted variety in the Trebbiano d'Abruzzo Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC) from the Abruzzo region of central Italy.[1]

Synonyms[edit]

Various synonyms have been used to describe Cococciola and its wines including Cacciola, Cacciuolo and Cociumella.
