THE COLLECTION OF SPANISH GRAPE VARIETIES
This grape variety has been largely forgotten for many years. Produced like Alicante Bouschet, it would make a petits grains grenache. It likes deep soils and high phosphorus fertilisation. By growing grapes on trellises, we can significantly improve the quality of the grapes and their production. When it is not used as a monovarietal it is primarily used to enrich the colour of other wines. 25.899 Ha planted in Spain.
