Some of the Rarest Varieties of Wine Grape

The ‘celebrities’ of wine, Chardonnays, Sauvignon Blancs, and Merlots, are familiar to most of us. Looking further afield at the kind that remain out of the spotlight is, nonetheless, an important part of wine education for anyone. So, think about some of the lesser-known varieties that you can find at an online wine store.

The following are a few rarest of rare wine varieties that you can also order wine online.

1. ASSYRTIKO

On the picturesque island of Santorini, Assyrtiko is farmed, producing a delicious lime-scented wine with a noticeable peppery spice from the volcanic soil.

2.BAGA

Fine in the glass Baga possesses all of the characteristics of the world’s other great red wine online. Baga has a good phenolic structure, age-worthy acidity, and the capacity to age gracefully (that is, the wine does not fall apart when volatile acidity and aging compounds like sotolon grow).

3. BRACHETTO

Brachetto is a grape cultivated in the Piedmont region of northern Italy that is possibly Italy’s least well-known. It yields a fragrant, light red wine with a low alcohol content, usually less than 5.5 percent. It is utilized in the production of sparkling wines.

You are almost there if you imagine a pale, pink Moscato.

4. CABERLOT

Only two hectares of this cross between Cabernet Franc and Merlot are grown today, making it the world’s rarest grape variety. Also, it is extremely unique because this grape can only be found on one farm in Tuscany, and they have so far refused to share their secret with anyone.

5. FRAPPATO

Frappato is an internet red wine that does not take itself very seriously. Its pale red color and sweet-smelling fruit smells remain. Frappato could be related to Sangiovese genetically. It is also completely at home on any live volcano.

6. FURMINT

The major ingredient in Hungary’s Tokaji wine is furmint. It is a very old known cultivar to be susceptible to the noble rot of botrytis, dated from the mid-1600s and named for the village of Tokaji in Hungary.

Furmint made beautiful wines with flavors of marmalade, raisin, and caramel on the palate, always well-balanced by excellent acidity.

7. LISTÁN NEGRO

This wine is often likened to Grenache, however, it has a lower alcohol content. Carbonic maceration is commonly used to minimize the herbaceousness of this grape. This grape, though, has an otherworldly quality to it. The flavors appear to strike a balance between being too fruity and being too earthy.

8. REFOSCO

Because Refosco is a grape family, we will focus on one Italian variety called “Refosco dal Penduncolo Rosso” just for the sake of our investigation. This grape is the father of Corvina, which produces one of Italy’s best wines.

9. XINOMAVRO

This grape is serious about its work. When done well, Xinomavro reminds us about Barolo, but with a mild savory flavor that conjures up images of aged Tempranillo. You will, for the time being, need to sit just on it for a moment to let those high tannins and acids calm down.
