The white grape variety originates from Italy. Synonyms are Candia, Malvagia, Malvasia Aromatica di Candia, Malvasia Bianca Aromatica, Malvasia di Alessandria, Malvasia di Candia, Malvasia di Candia a Sapore Moscato and Malvasia di Candida. It is one of the many varieties with the name part Malvasia. Candia is an old name for the Greek island of Crete, but there is no genetic evidence for a presumed origin. However, it is still cultivated there today. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2020, it originates from a presumably natural cross between Malvasia Aromatica di Parma x unknown partner. A somatic mutation with reddish berries is the variety Malvasia Rosa.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
