The red grape variety comes from Romania. It is an open-pollinated seedling of the Cabernet Sauvignon variety, so the father variety is unknown. It was selected by the breeders Gherasim Constantinescu, Elene Negreanu, Margareta Baditescu and Valeria Culcea. The variety produces aromatic red wines. It is grown in small quantities in Romania. In 2016, 0.7 hectares of vines were reported there (Kym Anderson statistics).

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.Thomas Götz
