Albarín Negro

Synonym (also Albarín Tinto) for the grape variety Alfrocheiro; see there.

The red grape variety comes from Portugal or France. Synonyms are Alfrocheiro Preto, Alfurcheiro, Bastardo, Bastardo Negro, Tinta Bastardinha, Tinta Fina, Tinta Francesa de Viseu(Portugal); Albarín Negro, Albarín Tinto, Baboso Negro, Bruñal, Caíño Gordo(Spain). It is probably a very old variety, although it was first mentioned relatively late, in 1971. According to one hypothesis, it was imported from France, which could be indicated by the synonym Tinta Francesa de Viseu. The parentage or parenthood is unknown. It is not a colour mutation of the two white varieties Albarín Blanco or Alfrocheiro Branco(Trebbiano Toscano) or vice versa. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2018, it comes from a presumably natural cross between Savagnin Blanc(Traminer) x unknown partner.
