Series | Tinto Cao | Red | 2016 | Doc Douro - Vivino Rating 4.1
Intro: The Series wines represent our passion for innovation and experimentation in the search for new and interesting wines. Tinto Cão is a synonym of Douro! It is one of the most popular grapes for modern viticulture in the region for its adaptability, resistance and good yields. It is a vigorous grape, with small berries and very thick skin, that suggests us a more traditional approach to its vinification in order to discover the best style for this wine.
