Despite seemingly indicative synonyms or morphological She may not share similarities with the varieties Maceratino or Pignoletto (to be synonymous with Grechetto di Todi). According to done in 2004 DNA analysis but there is one Parent-offspring relationship between Grechetto di Orvieto and Pignoletto, which is why they used to serve as two Clones of the same variety and in DOC terms often only with "Grechetto" were named, which of course to some confusion and confusion with others Grechetto varieties leads. There is also a red berry variety called Grechetto Rosso (Greghetto) with unexplained identity.
