Suitability for cultivation and agronomic production
Tinta Barroca is vigorous and has a semi-erect bearing. It is best to trellish this variety and to prune it long as it is not very fertile if prune short. Tinta Barroca is not very adapted to drought and it is sensitive to burns. This variety should preferably be planted in deep enough soils, to provide a sufficient water supply.
Susceptibility to diseases and pests
Tinta Barroca is sensitive to downy mildew, powdery mildew and to vine leafhoppers. This variety is moderately susceptible to grey rot and phomopsis.
Technological potentiality
Tinta Barroca’s bunches are medium to large and moderately compact. The berries are medium in size, simple-flavored, with a thin skin and a juicy pulp. The wines are intensely colored. On high-altitude soils, this variety produces wines with a light tannin structure and floral aromas. In case of over-ripeness, the wines concentrate and have a good ageing potential. They can however lack acidity.

The only certified Tinta Barroca clone carries the number 1189.
