Moreto - Red
Moreto is characteristic from Alentejo and is much cultivated in Reguengos, Redondo and Granja-Amareleja. It is believed that it may have been brought to the region around the 19th Century, time by which there was a great development in Alentejo’s viticulture.
This grape variety has small bunches and medium-sized, round berries. It is very productive and late-ripening.
Wines produced with Moreto are usually not full bodied and have little colour. This explains why this grape variety is used in blend wines, being usually blended with Trincadeira, Aragonez and Tinta Caiada.
