Wrong picture[edit]

Please note that the published photo doesn't show s grape of Aglianico, that's a blue grape, not a yellow one. Aglianico is a red wine as you know. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.40.194.75 (talk) 22:07, 7 November 2012 (UTC)


Apulianicum[edit]

This wine it is classic of southern Italy.

Its name it cames from Apulia, which indicates the entire south of Italy in the roman age, and nows becomes Puglia. Hence the name Apulianicum => Apuglianicum => Aglianicum => Aglianico.

it is not related in any way with the ethymology Hellas => Hellenicum => Ellenico => Aglianico.--Raffaele Megabyte 21:59, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

All fine, except that "Apulianicum" seems pseudo-Latin. "Apulian" may be Apulus or Apulicus, but Apulianus already would smell fishy, and Apulianicus smells like a fish market. So, any primary source that could prove such a word even exists? I'd rather believe that Aglianico is a corruption of Ellenico, maybe through Spanish (where "ll" = Italian "gl") or some local dialect. -212.87.13.78 (talk) 21:02, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
