The white grape variety (also Odoacra) comes from Italy. The name means "fragrant". This extremely rare variety is cultivated exclusively in the municipality of Saracena (province of Cosenza) in Calabria, where it is used in blends with the varieties Guarnaccia Bianca(Coda di Volpe Bianca), Malvasia Bianca di Candia and Moscatello di Saracena(Muscat Blanc) for a Passito. In 2016, however, no stocks were reported (Kym Anderson).
