Parentage of the grape: None found. It is an ancient variety.

History of the grape: Though it is easily the most interesting and unique red grape in Rioja, its yields are low, it is prone to downy mildew, and it ripens extremely late. Thus, the cooler parts of Rioja are completely unsuitable for it. Indeed, a local joke has it that the name of the grape comes from the typical vigneron’s response when asked to grow it Read more »
