Ralli is a pale red / pink grape with softish berries, a slight crunch, very low acidity and good sweetness. The colour is often described as ‘Cardinal Red’. There is often a slight Muscat flavour in more mature fruit. The berry is slightly elliptical in shape.
Ralli is an early/mid-season grape.
Ralli is a popular variety with growers because it stores very well, so can keep successfully during long-distance shipping.
