The white grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are La Pampanuta, Pampanino, Pampanuta and Rizzulo. The parentage (parenthood) is unknown. The medium to late maturing vine produces rather low-acid white wines. The variety, which was threatened with extinction in the 1970s, was reactivated very successfully. Today it is mainly re-cultivated in the province of Bari in the region of Puglia. It is mostly blended with the two varieties Bombino Bianco and Trebbiano Giallo. The variety is permitted in the DOC white wine Castel del Monte Bianco. In 2010, a total of 356 hectares of vineyards were designated (Kym Anderson).
