The origins of the grape are still uncertain, but literary sources mention it on texts dating back to the 14th century, and mostly during the period of Aragonese domination in Sardinia, approximately from 15th to 18th century.

It expresses its best quality in sunny vineyards and in loose soils, in Terralba areas, close to the city of Oristano. It’s a very vigorous vine with large leaves and compact clusters of small berries, with a thick and richly colored skin.

It’s fruitful on average, as well as resistant to cryptogams. Maturation takes place between the third week of September and the first week of October.
