The white grape variety originates from Greece. Synonyms are Lampanzona, Perlina d'Inverno, Petrachladi, Prunesta Rosso Violacea and Uva Ruggia. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it comes from a presumably natural cross between Uva Sogra x Caccio di Fermo Nero. However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see Molecular Genetics). It is a parent of the varieties Imperial Napoleon, Olivette Blanche, Opsimo Edessis and Porcinale. The variety is used as table grape. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
