1) The white grape variety (also Pirovano 130) is a new variety between Black Monukka x Citronelle (which, however, was only determined by DNA analyses carried out in 2013). It was crossed in 1923 at the Research Centre in Rome by the breeder Alberto Piròvano (1884-1973); the breeding list erroneously mentions the parentage Sciamblese x Sultanina Nera (Black Monukka). The vine is used as a wine press and table grape; however, in 2010 no stock was reported (Statistics Kym Anderson).

2) Synonym for the vine varieties Albillo Mayor, Calagraño and Cayetana Blanca; see there.
