Aleatico is a black wine grape mostly grown in Lazio and Puglia in Italy, but also grown in New South Wales and California. In Chile, this grape is referred to as Red Moscatel. Aleatico is thought to be a mutation of Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains. The wine produced is highly aromatic, containing aromas of lychee, red berries and roses.
This grape has been used to make wine for many centuries; in fact, Napoléon Bonaparte was believed to have greatly enjoyed an Aleatico based tipple!
