The late-ripening, very productive vine yields rustic, tannin-rich red wines with intense aromas of cherries and violets. These are used for the production of still and sparkling wines. The variety is mainly cultivated in the two provinces of Cremona and Mantova. It is permitted in the DOC wines Lambrusco Mantovano and Reggiano. In 2016, 59 hectares of vines were reported with a strong downward trend (Kym Anderson).
