Discover the grape variety: Tourbat
The Tourbat grape variety is found particularly in Sardinia. It is probably of Catalan origin and is grown on an area of 25 hectares. It is also known by other names such as torbato, caninu or malvoise du Roussillon, and develops perfectly in hot, dry soil. It is noticeable for its drooping habit. Its lobed leaves have short teeth. The bunches, sometimes winged, are of medium size. They can weigh up to 347 gr. The berries, a little ellipsoid, are rather of a medium size. The flesh is juicy and covered with a rather thick skin, which takes on an amber-pink colour when they are ripe. A wine of medium acidity and high quality comes from this variety. When young, the wine gives off an aroma of ripe apples and when aged, it gives off a scent of honey and cooked fruits.
