White downy shoot with carmine colour edges. Young, downy, overlapping leaves with reddish margins. Adult leaves are orbicular in shape, medium sized, overlapped, glossy, dark- green in colour, deeply five-lobed. The petiolar sinus is lyre-shaped or with slightly overlapping edges.
Clusters are rather small cylindrical-conical, winged and with an average weight of 100 -125 grams. The berries are small, round, black and with thick, hard skin. Its pulp is firm and crispy, with a special taste reminiscent of violets and wild fruits such as blackcurrants of astringent flavor.
Wines obtained from this variety are very rich in tannins and must age several years after they have been in oak barrels to develop and release different aromas.
