The white grape variety comes from Italy. Although there are morphological similarities, or perhaps genetic relationships, with the Albanello, Albaranzeuli Bianco, Greco Bianco and Trebbiano Toscano (which is often confused with it), these are five independent vines. A relationship is also presumed with the Elbling variety. The vine produces white wines with good storage potential. It was once widespread in the Marche region, but is now limited to the province of Pesaro. There, it is a determining factor in the DOC wine Colli Pesaresi Bianco (especially in older sources, however, Trebbiano Toscano is erroneously mentioned). In 2010, however, no stock was reported (Kym Anderson).
