The white grape variety comes from Spain. Synonyms are Calagraña and Navès. It must not be confused with the Albillo Mayor or Cayetana Blanca (Calagraño) varieties, despite the fact that they appear to be synonyms or morphological similarities. The parentage (parenthood) is unknown. According to DNA analyses there is a genetic similarity with Garnacha. The vine produces rustic white wines. It is cultivated in small quantities in the Basque Country, Rioja and Valencia. In 2010, 4,794 hectares were declared, but in 2016 no more stock was declared (statistics Kym Anderson). Presumably the 2010 quantities were of the variety Cayetana Blanca (due to the synonym Calagraño).
