Manzoni that got in Conegliano (Treviso) between 1924 and 1930, through artificial insemination of Prosecco x Cabernet Sauvignon. The result, judged worthy of interest, allowed him to be included among the additional varieties of Treviso. Its spread is expected in the new revision in the hills of Conegliano, Vittorio Veneto, Montello.
