Altano Douro 2016

(2 customer reviews)


Grape Varieties:

Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca

Tasting Notes:

Naturally elegant. Deep, crimson colour. This Altano red reveals scented floral aromas and focused, fresh fruit. Simultaneously full and silky on the palate, well-defined red fruit flavours come to the fore, enveloped in soft, ripe tannins and spicy notes. Generous, well-structured and elegant.

Critic Reviews:

Wine Spectator, February 2012
Wild plum and berry flavours are concentrated and well rounded in this balanced, fresh-tasting red, which shows hints of chocolate on the finish.

Jancis Robinson in Financial Times, December 2009
Port producers Symington’s table wine, based on Tinta Roriz, improves with every vintage. Sweet blackberry fruit laced with pepper and spice. Fine, dry texture. Even quite elegant.

Wine Enthusiast, April 2014
A forward, fruity wine that shows ripe black-currant fruit. It does have the stricture that comes from the tough soils of the Douro, but this is balanced by the acidity, juicy fruitiness and ripe tannins.
