During the blind tasting, carried out by the Wine Testing Association from Salamanca ‘Cata Añada’, it was also stressed how the Petit Verdot, originally from France, brings to our wine depth and complexity in mouth. The Petit Verdot variety (meaning little green) ripens very late and its special feature is to provide aroma, colour, acidity and tannins (and also sometimes higher alcohol content) to most of the great French red wines, by adding less than 10% to the assemblage. The wine variety can be mainly found in Bordeaux together with the Cabernet Sauvignon variety.
