In fact, around 1880, it is present in the ampelographic collection of the School of Viticulture and Enology of Conegliano. In our country, mainly in the northern areas, it is currently very widespread, but certainly in the world is to be considered among the most cultivated vines.

Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety Ruby red wine with very deep purple shades, with an intense, fruity and vegetal scent that, with maturity, tends to express jumble notes and deliciously spiced. Tasting exam reveals softness and good pseudo-caloric sensations, medium freshness and tannicity always discreet, with long and pleasant aroma persistence.
