The red grape variety originates from Portugal; the profane name simply means "berry". Synonyms are Baga de Louro, Bagrina Crvena, Baguinha, Bairrada, Bairrado Tinta, Baya, Carrasquenho, Carrega Burros, Goncalveira, Morete, Moreto, Paga Divida, Poeirinha, Poeirinho, Povolide, Pretinho, Preto Rifete, Rifete, Rosete, Tinta Bairrada, Tinta Bairradina, Tinta da Bairrada, Tinta de Baga, Tinta Fina, Tinto de Bairrado and Tinta Fina. It should not be confused with the Camarate Tinto (Moreto), Moreto do Alentejo or Pedral varieties, despite the synonyms or morphological similarities that indicate this. The late-maturing, high-yielding vine is susceptible to botrytis but resistant to powdery mildew. The wines can be extremely varied from draught to top quality. This is why opinions are divided on this variety.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
