Series | Bastardo | Red | 2017 | Doc Douro | Vivino 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.

A very bright red, that impresses at first for its brick red colour, quirte unusual for a Douro Red. On the nose it reveals a very intense and complex fruity character with notes of wild berries, pomegranate and gooseberries. This wine primes for its intensity and elegance, showing nobility and finesse, with round firm tanins and a long, lingering finish. Offers immense adaptability for food pairing.
