Maçanita Tinto 2021

Cima Corga, Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalSiblings Antonio and Joana Maçinata work together on this Douro Valley project. This is a blend of touriga nacional, sousão (now renamed sezão) and a field blend of old vines, all from the Cima Corgo, and is native fermented with 25 days on skins in stainless, where it remains for one year. Black plum, tart cassis, and perfumed purple florals work their way through this lifted medium bodied red, bright with stony acidity, and framed with lightly sticky tannins. Drinking now, ideally with grilled sausages / lamb kabobs.Tasted: 16 January 2024Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
