Tsimlyansky Cherny

The red grape variety (also Tsimlyansky) originates from Russia. Despite its apparently indicative synonym, it should not be confused with the variety Plechistik (Plechistik Tsimlyansky). The medium ripening vine is susceptible to downy mildew. It produces red wines with embedded tannins and aromas of dried plums, black pepper and leather. The old variety is grown in the Rostov region along the Don River and Krasnodar in the southwest of the country. It is used for dry to sweet aged wines, sparkling wines and fortified dessert wines. In 2010, the area under cultivation was 451 hectares (including plectic, as it is cultivated for pollination together with this all-female grape variety).
