      Becuet Grape variety

Becuét is widespread in the upper and middle Susa Valley (Chiomonte).
It is a vigorous grape, particularly in its early years, but over time productivity and vigour balance out.
The bunch is small, cylindrical or conical, and sparse, and the grapes are egg-shaped with a thick skin. The wine it produces has a considerable extract and an outstanding polyphenolic complement. Because of the high concentration of coloured matter in its grapes, Becuét is used by winemakers to improve blends with other varietals, for example( Avanà,Chatus,Neretta Cuneese…) producing a wine with a rich body and structure, that ages well in wooden barrels.
