The white grape variety comes from Italy, Synonyms are Bottaio Bianco, Cacciumo, Cacinello, Canaiolo Bianco, Canajola, Canina, Drupeccio, Lupeccio, Trupeccio and Volpicchio. Despite apparently suggestive synonyms, she is not allowed to use the varieties Vermentino. Vernaccia di San Gimignano (Drupeccio) or Zuccaccio be confused. The variety is in the range Orvieto in Umbria, as well as in the region Lazio under the name Drupeggio , and at least since 1817 in the Tuscany known as Canaiolo Bianco .

By done in 2011 DNA analysis it turned out that the Canaiolo Bianco name was confusingly used for several independent varieties in Tuscany, for example Drupeggio, Vernacchia di San Gimignano and Zuccaccio. The late-ripening, productive vine produces a yellow-green wine. In 2010 the area under cultivation was 286 hectares (Kym Anderson ).
