This autochthonous variety of vine was known already in 1300 and it was discovered by Venetians in the Middle Ages in the Greek city of Monovasia also called Malvasia.

This valuable variety of vine was imported by Venetians in their own territories where it had a remarkable diffusion reaching all the area of the Mediterranean Sea.
