The red grape variety originates from Greece. Synonyms are Corfiatico, Korfiatiko, Korfiatis, Korfiatiko, Korfiatis and Korphiates. In the Greek vine database it is described as identical to the Kotsifali variety, with which it shares some synonyms. However, according to the Swiss grapevine geneticist Dr José Vouillamoz, the two varieties are ampelographically different. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
