The red grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Bassanese dal Peduncolo Rosso, Caprara, Cavarada, Cavarara, Cavrara Nera. The first mention dates back to 1754 in Veneto, where it was once quite common. The medium to late ripening vine is generally resistant to various diseases. The already almost extinct variety has been reactivated in some vineyards. It is authorised in the DOC wines Bagnoli di Sopra and Colli Berici. In 2010, a total area of 23 hectares was designated as cultivated.
