Albillo Real

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Albillo Real is a white grape variety that is grown in central Spain on around 3000 hectares of vineyards, especially in the provinces of Extremadura, Galicia , Castile-León and Vinos de Madrid , as well as on La Palma . The variety ripens relatively early and has a high glycerol content . It is also sold as a table grape , but is only partially transportable. The grape variety is vigorous and high-yielding and delivers low-acid but high-alcohol wines . It is not only expanded according to the variety, but also serves to reduce the acidity of acidic wines. Albillo Real is a variety of the noble grapevine ( Vitis vinifera ). It has hermaphroditic flowers and is therefore self-fruiting. In viticulture , the economic disadvantage of not having to grow male plants that produce yield is avoided.

Extensive DNA tests revealed that Albillo Real was the result of a cross between Prié Blanc and an as yet unidentified variety. Prié Blanc has been cultivated for a long time in the Spanish province of Ávila under the name Legiruela.
