Among the 18 Malvasia varieties in the Italian National Winegrape Registry, Malvasia Bianca, along with Nera (of Brindisi-Lecce), is traditionally identified with Puglia. It develops a compact, medium-sized, pyramidal cluster with large berries of greenish-tinged yellow and a very thick skin. Medium-early ripening, it displays fairly good resistance to the main fungal diseases and weather-related problems. Malvasia Bianca is grown throughout Puglia and is included in various DOP production codes, including San Severo, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, and Lizzano. The wines are elegantly aromatic.
