The origins of the grape are still not certain, but literary sources mention it on texts around 1300, and mostly during the period of Aragonese domination in Sardinia from approximately 1400 to 1700. It expresses its best quality in sunny vineyards and in loose soils, in Terralba areas, close to Oristano town. It’s a very vigorous vine with large leaves and compact cluster of small berries, with a thick and rich in color skin. It’s fruitful on average, such as resistant to cryptogams. Maturation takes place between the third week of September and 1st October.
