Synonyms are Greco di Velletri, Rossetto, Rossola, Trebbiano dei Castelli, Trebbiano di Spagna and Trebbiano Giallo di Velletri. It must not be confused with the Greco, Rossetto or Trebbiano Modenese varieties, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological or name similarities.

It is mainly cultivated in the Latium region, where it is used in the DOC/DOCG white wines Bianco Capena, Castelli Romani, Cerveteri, Colli Albani, Colli Etruschi Viterbesi, Colli Lanuvini, Colli della Sabina, Controguerra, Cori, Est! Est!!! Est!!! di Montefiascone, Frascati, Roma and Tarquinia is authorised. There are other stocks in Lombardy, where it is included in the DOC wine Garda Colli Mantovani, and Emilia-Romagna, where it is used for balsamic under the name Trebbiano di Spagna. In 2016, 2,275 hectares of vines were reported (Kym Anderson statistics).
