Cornalin is first mentioned by Lorenzo Francesco Gatta in 1838, in "Saggio delle viti e dei vini della Valle d'Aosta." A very common grape at the time, it quickly declined to near extinction. Saved by pure chance due to its similarity to Petite Rouge during plant selection for breeding. DNA tests established that Cornalin is descended from Rouge du Pays, which is descended from Mayolet and Petite Rouge. The name of Cornalin has an uncertain origin; it is thought to derive from the stone "cornelian" or from Colignola, one of the towns where the vine originated. It grows in very limited areas, just below 700 meters above sea level, and is characterized by a medium to small pyramidal cluster with round, dark blue berries.
