It is one of red native variety in Ribeiro in peak production, being at the moment the first one, with great polyphenolic potential. We do not usually find it as monovarietal but it is a base in different proportions for the development of interesting, distinct and peculiar wines.
Agronomically it is a plant with little vigor, resistant to drought adapting well to loose soil, has an average fertility and low productivity (8 - 11 Tn / Ha). Its budding season is mid-late and its maturation cycle is long, so its location predominates in areas that are favorable for early ripening. It has high sensitivity to powdery mildew, medium to mildew and low to Botrytis.
