This white grape is very popular in the Veneto but also found in other regions.  It produces the wonderful white wine of Soave.  In and around the town of Gambellara, the grape is also known as Gambellara.  It is one of the most widely diffused grapes after Trebbiano Toscano.

DNA shows that this grape is identical to the Grecanico Dorato of Sicily and Malvasia de Manresa from Spain.
