Duas Quintas Douro Rouge 2008
Winemaker's Notes Quinta de Ervamoira is located in the heart of the Douro, in schist soil and at low altitude. The grapes are grown in a hot, dry climate, allowing for deep maturation. In granite soil, at a higher altitude, we find Quinta dos Bons Ares where the grapes mature in fresh, windy weather that gives them freshness and vivacity. It was careful tasting that made it possible to join Duas Quintas in a unique, fruity, strong and complex wine. Grapes Varieties: Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional.
