The red grape variety comes from Greece. Synonyms are Chondromavrouda, Chondromavroudi, Chondromavroudo and Khondromavroud. It must not be confused with the morphologically different variety Sefka (with the confusing synonym Chondromavro)(DNA analyses are pending, however, as of 2013). The late ripening vine is susceptible to botrytis. It produces low-acid red wines with soft tannins, which are also produced as Liastos (sweet wine from dried grapes). The variety is often cultivated together with the Moschomavro and Xinomavro varieties in the Kozáni area of Macedonia (where the "false" Chondromavro also grows).
