I just wanted to give you a few more examples I have found.
This variety is common in the Leon and Zamora regions. It adapts well to frosts and huidity as well as the summer heat waves which are common in the Castillian plains. It produces wines with a medium robe, soft on the palate and with flowery aromas.
