Albillo Mayor

The white grape variety originates from Spain. Synonyms are Albilla, Albilla Mayor, Albillo (see there for a list of this group of names), Albillo de Toro, Blanca del Pais, Blanco del País, Doradilla, Monastrell Blanco, Pardina, Picadillo, Picadillo Blanco, Torrontés, Turruntés and Turruntés de la Rioja. It should not be confused with the Albillo de Albacete, Albillo Real, Calagraño or Cayetana Blanca (Pardina) varieties, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2015, Albillo Mayor is one of the many direct descendants of the leading variety Hebén; the second parent is unknown. A parent-descendant relationship with the Doradilla variety was also found. The Tempranillo variety comes from a presumably natural cross Albillo Mayor x Benedicto.
