Savatiano

The white grape variety originates from Greece. Synonyms are Aspro, Condoura, Dobraina Aspri, Dombraina Aspri, Doubraina Aspri, Doumpraina Lefki, Doumprena Aspri, Kontoura Lefki, Koudoura Aspri, Kountoura Aspri, Perachoritico, Perachoritiko, Perahoritiko, Parachoritis, Sabates, Sabbathiano, Sabbatiano, Sakeiko, Saturday Grape, Savathiano, Savvatiano, Savvatiano Perachoritiko, Stamatiano, Tsoumbrena Aspri, Tsoumbrena Lefki and Tsoumprena. It must not be confused with the variety Xynisteri, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms. It is also not a mutation of the red variety Mandilaria (with synonym Kountoura Mavri). According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is a presumably natural cross between Roditis x Karystino. However, this was based on only 20 DNA markers (see Molecular genetics). However, the father variety was not confirmed in a further analysis carried out in 2021.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
