(Pronounced “roo-FEH-teh”). Rare red-wine grape found in the border region of Spain and Portugal just south of Salamanca. Generally used as a light Portwine blending wine because of its easy oxidation, this grape reportedly can also produce a deeply colored, candied berry fruit-laden, fleshy varietal suitable for youthful drinking.
