The red grape variety originates from Albania and is named after the municipality of the same name. There is a presumption that it is the original variety of the Hungarian Kadarka. However, nothing is known about the ancestry (parentage) as well as a possible genetic relationship to the Kallmet Bukmire variety. It is a purely female grape variety. No stock was reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
For me, Lexicon from wein.plus is the most comprehensive and best source of information about wine currently available.Egon Mark
