Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety However, in the wines it makes a certain softness, with fine aromas, with good aroma. The predominant scents are herbaceous and floral, with a palate that follows the olfactory tendencies. A good feature of this wine is its acidity that allows it to be small in the barrels, even with real aging. In the mouth it also maintains some flavor that makes it a good accompaniment for structured dishes.
Notes Resistance to meteoric adversity, diseases and parasites: little disease-resistant; Subject to frostbite, as well as droughts, excessive heat, and August syrups, which may cause sunburn to unprotected bunches of leaves.
