Albillo Mayor

The white grape variety comes from Spain. Synonyms are Albilla, Albilla Mayor, Albillo (see a list of this name group there), Albillo de Toro, Blanca del Pais, Blanco del País, Doradilla, Monastrell Blanco, Pardina, Picadillo, Picadillo Blanco, Turruntes, Turruntes de la Rioja and Torrontés. It must not be confused with the varieties Albillo de Albacete, Albillo Real, Calagraño or Cayetana Blanca (Pardina), despite synonyms or morphological similarities which appear to indicate this. 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-offspring relationship with the Doradilla variety has also been established. The variety Tempranillo is the result of a presumably natural cross between Albillo Mayor and Benedicto
