The white grape variety comes from Italy; the name means "peppercorn" and refers to the small berries with little seeds. The origin (parentage) is unknown. The vine tends to have small berries. It produces low acidity white wines, which are blended with the Biancolella and Falanghina Flegrea varieties. The variety is grown in small quantities in the Costa d'Amalfi area of the Campania region. In 2010, three hectares of vineyard area were designated (statistics Kym Anderson).
