Petit Verdot

petit verdot

El Petit verdot es una variedad de uva negra usada en la producción del vino tinto, principalmente mezclado con Cabernet Sauvignon.

El hecho de que madura mucho más tarde que la mayor parte de las otras variedades de uva impide que prospere con éxito en muchas de las regiones francesas, y se encuentra solamente en la región de Burdeos. Su uso principal es aportar el aroma, el color, el ácido y el tanino (en ocasiones también usado para aumentar la graduación alcohólica) a muchos de los grandes vinos tintos franceses, mediante una adición no superior al 10 por 100 del total. En Argentina se la encontraba mezclada con la Malbec desde 1852. A esta mezcla se la llamaba "uva francesa". Actualmente hay en Argentina más de 500 Has.

Se cultiva recientemente en Chile, Uruguay, California, Colorado, Texas, Washington, Virginia, Australia, Venezuela, Columbia Británica, Nueva Zelanda y Bolivia, también para potenciar otros vinos. En Perú se producen vinos varietales con 100% uvas Petit Verdot.

En España fue introducida en 1991 por el enólogo Juan Manuel Vetas en Ronda (Málaga) y, según la Orden APA/1819/2007, por la que se actualiza el anexo V, clasificación de las variedades de vid, del Real Decreto 1472/2000, de 4 de agosto, que regula el potencial de producción vitícola, la petit verdot es variedad autorizada para las Comunidades autónomas de AndalucíaCastilla-La ManchaCastilla y LeónExtremaduraRegión de Murcia y Comunidad Valenciana.

Sus aromas se han comparado a las virutas del plátano y del lápiz. Adquiere fuertes tonos violáceos durante el proceso de maduración.

Notas de Cata: Rojo violáceo, intenso y brillante. Las notas de frutos rojos, ciruelas y moras combinadas con los aromas de caramelo, vainilla y moca aportados por la crianza en madera dan como resultado una gran complejidad aromática. De gran volumen, muy graso y carnoso. Acidez presente y bien equilibrada que da buen relieve en boca. Los taninos son dulces y bien equilibrados con la dulzura de la fruta y de la madera.

The notes of spices and black fruit are combined with a very classic wood, which provides notes of vanilla and chocolate, as well as some notorious toasts. The tannins present a certain rusticity but nothing to bother. Although it has a dry pulse, there appears the counterpoint of the sweetness of the barrel. A friendly Petit Verdot that is a good gateway...
