The red grape variety comes from Spain. Synonyms are Barrilol, Galmeta, Galmete, Garró, Mandó, Morenillo and Valenciana Tinta. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2012, it is probably a natural cross between Hebén x Graciano. However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). She was a parent of the Castellana Blanca variety. The endangered variety is cultivated in Catalonia (partly under the name Garró), where it is permitted in the DO red wine Terra Alta. In 2016, only 0.5 hectares were designated (Kym Anderson).
