We do not know the origins of this vine variety cultivated in Sicily for several centuries. Presumably it is the same grape that Cupani (1696) describes as a Sicilian grape called “Grecani”. Vigorous plant, medium leaf, medium mostly conical bunch, berries with a little pruinose golden yellow peel. Medium maturity.
Fine golden yellow wine, fairly alcoholic, with a neutral, fresh and harmonious smell and taste. Due to its good productive characteristics it is a vine variety widely cultivated in Sicily, and in particular in the western areas of the island. The historical area of diffusion lies in the provinces of Trapani and Agrigento.
