Negramoll is the local name for Tinta Negra, one of the workhorse grapes of Madeira; it is actually much more widely planted throughout the Canary Islands, where there are just over 3,000 acres under vine. Here, it is used primarily to make red table wines rather than fortified wines.The origin of the grape seems to be in Andalucia, where it is known as Mollar Cano. Negramoll loosely translates to "soft black;" the name "Mollar" comes from the Latin word mollis, meaning soft (perhaps because the berries are soft to the touch.) This wine is from a mix of her sites, in the northern and southern zones in the island. Partially fermented with whole clusters (about 30%). Thefruit from each site is vinified separately—in American oak, old chestnut barrels and tank—and then blended. Élèvage is in 600L French barrels.
