The white grape variety originates from Italy. Synonyms are S. Antonio and Sant'Antonio. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2005, it is genetically closely related to the Sanginella Salerno (Zimavacca) variety. However, the parentage is unknown. It should not be confused with the red variety San Antoni from France, which has a similar name (nothing is known about a possible relationship between these two varieties). The medium to late maturing vine is grown in small quantities in the province of Caserta in Campania, where it is used as a blend with other local varieties. However, no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
