Callet is not an internationally known red grape, but one that has made itself a name throughout Mallorca, Spain. In the past, it was considered a rustic grape used only for making young rosés and reds, but has now lent itself to making deep-coloured, low-alcohol blends. When blended with varieties such as Cabernet, Manto Negro
, Tempranillo, Fogoneu Mallorqui or Fogoneu Frances, it typically adds both complexity and spice.
Some bodegas to keep in mind while searching out varietal are Bodegas Pere Seda and Bodegas Miquel Oliver. Both Bodegas have blended Callet into both their roses and red wines to give both complexity and spice.
