Variety grown in the Orvieta DOC, Umbria, Italy. Has synonym names Drupeccio and Lupeccio. Usually the wine from this grape is blended with several others, eg. Verdello and Greco Bianco, to create the dry white (bianco) wine associated with the name of the DOC. Recommended for drinking as young wines but capable of gaining style from two-three years cellaring. The botrytis affected blends from the region are considered by some to be a superior sweet wine that is vaguely reminiscent of french Sauterne.
