The white grape variety comes from Italy, It must not be with the variety Fiano be confused, for which the synonym Santa Sofia is confusingly used and which had long been considered identical. This was done through in 2005 DNA analysis refuted and found a close relationship to the no longer cultivated, local Rosso Antico variety. The variety was up to phylloxera disaster as wine press and table grape in the region Campania widespread in the province of Salerno. Today there are only a few old vineyards south of Salerno. The resulting white wine is made with the Fiano and Trebbiano Toscano in Campanian DOC white wine Cilento blended. In 2010, however, no stocks were shown (Kym Anderson ).
