The white grape variety comes from Spain. Synonyms are Bobal Blanco, Nave, Plant Rico, Plant X, Ricoville and Tortosí. The parentage (parenthood) is unknown. Nothing is known about possible connections with the red Bobal or the white Alcañón (synonym Bobal Blanca). The variety is cultivated in the DO area of Valencia. In 2010, 503 hectares of vineyard area were declared (ten years before there were 930)

According to DNA analyses carried out in 2007, the variety Rojal (synonym for Alarije) is identical to Tortosí (synonym for Tortosina). The relationship between Alarije and Tortosina is therefore unclear.
