Zamarrica

The red grape variety comes from Spain. The parentage (parenthood) is unknown. The early-ripening, high-yielding vine is very susceptible to powdery mildew. It produces acid-rich red wines with soft tannins and aromas of balsamic, orange and eucalyptus. The almost extinct variety was reactivated in 2007 by the creation of new areas by a single producer. It is cultivated in the north-western region of Galicia in the Monterrei area. However, no stocks were recorded in 2016 (statistics Kym Anderson).
