The red grape variety comes from Italy, For a long time it was considered identical to the variety Fortana (Brugnola) until through in 2006 DNA analysis their independence has been proven. There was also a Parent-offspring relationship between Brugnola and Nebbiolo detected. Due to apparently suggestive synonyms, it may not be used with the variety Lambrusco di Fiorano (Brugnola) to be confused. The vine is resistant to Botrytis and wrong mildew but prone to powdery mildew. It is used as a wine press table grape used. The variety is in the range Valtellina in the Lombardy grown where it is mainly used as a waste. In 2010, however, no stock was shown (Statistics Kym Anderson ).
