This is the third most commonly found native red variety in the Ribeiro area, with good aroma and glycerin content. It is a variety of medium yield, semi-upright and horizontal that ripens easily. Its cycle is long with early bud burst and average ripening.
It is highly resistant to Botrytis, average to mildew and low to oidium.
Its easy ripening is perfect to get good sugary musts with average acidity, producing aromatic, oily and low structured wines with body.
It is usually mixed with other varieties with more polyphenolic contents, giving them aromatic complexity and red fruits smells, savory, balanced, unctuous, oily and with volume.
