The red grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Bindarella, Dindarella Rizza, Dindarella Veronese, Pelada, Pelara, Pelara Veronese, Quaiara and Quajara. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2010, the Pelara variety is identical. There is a genetic relationship with the leading variety Garganega. But the exact parentage ((parenthood) is unknown. A direct descendant is the variety Scacco. The medium maturing vine is resistant to botrytis. It produces colourful, spicy and aromatic red wines. The variety was once widespread in the Veneto region. It is permitted in the DOC wines Valdadige and Valpolicella. In 2016, however, it only occupied five hectares of vineyards (Kym Anderson).
