According to the Geisenheim oenology institute, in Germany, the vine originates from the Rhineland, where grapes with very similar characteristics are still grown today. Later it was exported to Veneto, a region in which it is attested at least since the fourteenth century. More precise news are handed down by Jacopo Agostinetti in 1679. The plants of Raboso are very resistant and have managed to overcome the spread of phylloxera at the end of the nineteenth century without much difficulty.
It is typical of the Treviso area, but it is also widespread in the province of Padua with the name of friulara or friularo (from the "cold" frio because the harvest took place in the late autumn).
Despite its name, it is cultivated mainly in the provinces of Venice, Vicenza, Rovigo (Polesine area). Genetic analysis has shown itself to be the direct son of Raboso Piave (mother) and Marzemina Bianca (father). Its diffusion in the Treviso area, and perhaps its own birth, is due to the Papadopoli counts. Compared to the Raboso Piave it usually originates more lovable wines, but always lively acidulous.
