Local grape variety almost lost to extinction following the phylloxera epidemic of the late 19th century when vineyard owners decided against replanting the variety in favour of French wine grapes. It went out of fashion and almost lost. Carefully processed produces a good bodied red wine with a very pleasant bouquet.
Color: intense ruby red.
Bouquet: deep aromas of wild berries and raspberry.
Taste: slightly sour, hint of tannin, full flavour.
Serving suggestions: served at room temperature it is perfect with cured meat and Pizza, slightly chilled is a great match with fried fish.
