Series | Natur | Red | 2015 | Doc Douro - Vivino Rating NA
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.

This beautiful red wine, surprises us at first for its deep concentrated colour and aromatic expression. On the nose we get clean, appealing notes of ripe bergamot and both red and blueberries, providing good complexity. Its flavours match its nose profile, yet its still offers delicate balsamic nuances and greenish hints of spice that provide generous and ample layers of flavour. Its tanins are round and juicy, and its acidity nicely balanced, resulting in a fine texture and a long, lingering finish.
