Thanks to research made in the last decade, it has already been discovered that in the 1800 this vine variety was renowned for its wholesome goodness. Quoted in the municipal documents related to farming in Alba and Mondovì, it was mainly used as a blending wine. In order to understand the origin of its name, it is necessary to recall some important steps, starting from 1877, when Di Rovasenda defined it as “‘Anascetta’, a very delicate grape and an exquisite wine” in the essay entitled “Saggio di un’ampelografia universale” which can still be found in the library of Dipartimento di Colture arboree of the Turin University. Later, in 1895, Fantini also presented it as a grape boasting a “fineness equal to Moscato”, while the ampelograph Giovanni Gagna coined its name, quoting it as a “great wine for vinification, used together with white Moscato and Favorita”.
