THE PETIT VERDOT VARIETY
The Petit Verdot is a classic red grape used in blendings of French wines. Its origin is uncertain, it might have been introduced by the Romans in their advance inland from the Mediterranean.
It is a late maturing variety, that is why this variety is only found in the French Bordeaux area where the weather is more favourable. It is used to provide aroma, color, acidity and tannic grip to many of the great French red wines, using no more than 10% addition.
In Spain the Petit Verdot has made its room due to the Spanish weather with dry hot Septembers and cold nights but not so cold as the French ones because of the latitudes. All this influences an optimal fruit quality when harvesting and allow us to drink a Petit Verdot with the best features offered by the variety.
The Petit Verdot provides body, power color and aromas of blackberries, plums, sweet tannins and balanced acidity.
