The red grape variety comes from Turkey; the name means "Grandfather Dede Siyahi". Synonyms are Hasandede and Hasandede Noir. There is also a white variety called Hasandede Beyazi, but nothing is known about a possible relationship. This variety produces colourful, strong alcoholic red wines. It is cultivated in the Kirikkale province east of Ankara in Central Anatolia. However, no stock was reported in 2010 (Kym Anderson).
