The vine variety Garnacha Tinta

 
 
The vine variety Garnacha Tinta

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).

Wine
Bright color, fruity (cherry), velvety and full, mostly in cuvées with Tempranillo or Cariñena.
