This grape comes from Sardinia (Italy)
and is the most commonly grown red grape in Spain with
170,000 hectares. Granacha Tinta is grown in the east,
west, and north of Spain. This wide distribution has
to do with the high yield of this grape. Nevertheless
with smaller harvests it is possible to produce wines
with a lot of character, mostly in cuvees (the best
example is the DOCa wine region Priorat,
where it enjoys cult status).
Bright color, fruity (cherry), velvety and full, mostly
in cuvées with Tempranillo or Cariñena.
