The vine | Large sized bunches, with medium berries.
Viticulture | Sufficiently balanced vigour; very good production and good disease resistance.
Wine style | Lemony, pear, sage, and chlorophyll aromas and flavours. Lightweight wine with an high-acid frame, and a zippy minerality.
Other names | Italy: Gargania. | Vitouska. | Slovenia: Vitovska Grganja. | Garganja.
