The red grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Aglianicone Nero and Glianicone. The earlier assumption that it is identical to the Ciliegiolo variety was proven wrong by DNA analyses carried out in 2002. It is also not a mutation of Aglianico, but there is a close relationship with this variety. It is cultivated in the regions of Basilicata and Campania (authorised in the DOC wine Castel San Lorenzo). In 2010, 62 hectares of vineyard area were designated with a strong downward trend (Kym Anderson).
