The white grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Bottaio Bianco, Cacciumo, Cacinello, Canaiolo Bianco, Canajola, Canina, Drupeccio, Lupeccio, Trupeccio and Volpicchio. Although synonyms may appear to indicate this, it should not be confused with the varieties Vermentino, Vernaccia di San Gimignano (Drupeccio) or Zuccaccio. The variety is known in the area of Orvieto in Umbria, as well as in the region of Lazio under the name Drupeggio, and at least since 1817 in Tuscany under the name Canaiolo Bianco. The late ripening, high-yielding vine produces a yellow-green wine. In 2016, 81 hectares of vineyards were planted with a decreasing tendency (statistics Kym Anderson).
