The grape variety comes from Italy, Synonyms are Oltremarina, Tarmarina, Termarina Rossa, Tramarina, Uva di Corinto, Uva Passarina and Uva Passerina. It was first described by a Bertozzi as a variety from Reggio Emilia in 1840. There were obviously white and black versions. According to in 2005 DNA analysis it is not a color mutation the hardly cultivated variety Termarina Bianca (or vice versa). It is also not (as previously suspected) identical to the Corinto Nero variety ( korinthiaki ). in the VIVC catalog the dark berry termarina is a mutation of the Sciaccarello variety ( mammolo ) specified.
The only important version is Termarina Rossa . The productive vine with seedless reddish berries yield full-bodied wines with silky tannins and aromas of cherries. It was only reinstated in the official register of varieties in 2007 and becomes the province of Parma and Reggio Emilia Emilia-Romagna grown. In 2010, 20 hectares of vineyards were shown (Kym Anderson ).
