It must not be confused with the varieties Alvarinho, Pampanuto, Verdea or Verdicchio Bianco, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. The variety is identical to the Greek Lagorthi and arrived in Puglia from there. The Plavina variety is the result of a presumably natural cross between Tribidrag (Crljenak Kaštelanski) x Verdeca.
