Baboso Negro

A black variety that produces richly coloured wines with good freshness and fine grained tannins. Also known as Alfochiero in Portugal, Albarin Negro, Albarin Tinto (both in Asturias, Spain), Bastardo Negro and Caino Gordo, amongst others! Genetically it is similar to Trousseau but the wines manifest with a deeper colour and more prominent tannins, depending on where it is grown. Only really found in Portugal, Northern Spain and the Canary Islands. More often that not it is used as a blending variety but it is found occasionally as a single variety in the Canaries. Ref. Wine Grapes, Robinson, Harding and Vouillamoz. Ed. 2012.
