Lagarino Bianco

The white grape variety originates from Trentino(Italy). The name is probably derived from the Valle Lagarina in Trentino. Synonyms are Chegarèl and Sghittarella. It is possible that the "White Lagreiner", first mentioned in 1318 and then repeatedly until the 18th century, is a wine from this variety (or Traminer). According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it originates from a presumably natural cross between Terlaner x Maor. However, this is based on only 18 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). The early-maturing, high-yielding vine is resistant to winter frost and fungal diseases. It produces white wines with a lemon flavour. The variety is cultivated in Trentino. In 2016, six hectares of vines were reported with a decreasing trend (Kym Anderson).
