The white grape variety originates from Italy. The parentage is unknown. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2010, it is a parent of the Marchione and Mostosa varieties (ex VIVC catalog). However, according to Swiss biologist Dr. José Vouillamoz, it is unclear whether there is actually a distinct grape variety called Ragusano (personal information). Ragusano or Ragusano Bianco is a synonym for the grape varieties Asprinio Bianco (Greco), Malvasia di Sardegna (Malvasia di Lipari) and Moscatello Selvatico, as well as Ragusano Nero for Verdone N ero (Asprinio Nero). In 2016, no stocks were reported under the name Ragusano (Kym Anderson statistics)
