Red wine from Portugal
Varietal: Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca
This is a superb discounted red from the portfolio of the Symingtons, known for their famous port brands such as Grahams and Dows. Over half the Douro Valley is given over to dry red wine production, and this delicious example comes from the steep sided river terraces in the harsh Douro River Valley. Low yields and old vines produce wines of remarkable quality with sweet, ripe blackberry and black cherry aromatics with notes of liqourice and violet. Delicious and different, the Altano is great value.
