The vines are very productive and remarkably suited for different climates and soils, altough it performs better in hot, dry climates on sandy or clay-limestone soils. It is usually blended with other varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Trincadeira and Alicante Bouschet in the Alentejo.
