Tinta Barroca - Red
The Tinta Barroca is an fast growing, early maturing grape type that produces large clusters of large, thin skinned berries. The variety produces wines with delicate and subtle flavors.
It grows best in cooler situations (such as high elevations) and in better vintages delivers a larger crop than any of the other 'Port Blend' varieties. It is blended with other varieties in order to soften the blend, add perfume to the aroma and lengthen the finish.
