The white grape variety originates from Italy. Although there are morphological similarities or perhaps also genetic relations to the varieties Albanello, Albaranzeuli Bianco, Greco Bianco and (often confused with it) Trebbiano Toscano, they are five independent vines. A relationship to the Elbling variety is also suspected. The vine yields white wines with good aging potential. It was once widespread in the Marche region. In the province of Pesaro, it is a determining part of the DOC wine Colli Pesaresi Bianco (in older sources, however, Trebbiano Toscano is wrongly indicated). However, no stock was reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
