The white grape variety originates from Italy; it is found under different names in Corsica (France) and Sardinia (Italy). Synonyms are Arremungiau, Brustiano, Brustianu, Calitrano, Calitranu, Colitrano, Lacconargiu, Lacconarzu, Licronaxiu, Licronaxu Bianco and Remungiò. The ancestry (parentage) is unknown. It should not be confused with the Brustiano Faux, Retagliado Bianco or Vermentino varieties, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. DNA analyses carried out in 2007 revealed that the Sardinian Licronaxu Bianco is identical, and Licronaxu Nero is a colour mutation. The high-yielding vine is susceptible to powdery mildew. No stocks were reported (under either Brustiano or Licronaxu) in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
The wein.plus encyclopaedia is a comprehensive, well-researched reference work. Available anytime and anywhere, it has become an indispensable part of teaching, used by students and myself alike. Highly recommended!Dominik Trick
