Historical vine variety of the Etna area where it has been cultivated since ancient time. Described by Sestini (1760) in his memoirs about the wines of Mascali, owes its name to the abundant production that it is able to give.
On average vigorous plant, medium leaf, medium bunch of cylindrical or cylindrical-conical shape, berries with a consistent peel of greenish-yellow colour, golden in the face exposed to the sun. Late maturity.
The wine that is produced is particularly fine, of straw-yellow colour with greenish reflections, provided with a good aromatic set with herbaceous, fragrant and floral smells, good gustatory structure, warm, sapid characterized by a high fixed acidity which makes it particularly suitable for maturing in wood and preservation over time.
It is widespread in the province of Catania.
