Its main cultivation area for over a hundred years has been in the province of Udine, but it is also cultivated in the provinces of Gorizia and Pordenone and in the Veneto region. Poggi (1939) distinguished two biotypes: a green one that has now disappeared and a yellow one; Perusini also identified the “raçsie” biotype (1935) in the Ramandolo area (UD).

Phenological and production characteristics

The budding takes place in the average while the maturation lasts. Of good vigor and constant but not excessive productivity, it adapts to different types of cultivation, but prefers medium-expansion ones, with medium-long pruning that is not too rich. It is a vine that has a good tolerance towards botrytis due to its leathery skin, while it is sensitive to downy mildew, powdery mildew, moths, mites and leafhoppers.
