Description of Altano Reserva 2016
Altano Reserva 2016 (Touriga Nacional)
- View: Altano Reserva 2016 has a deep, red colour.
- Nose: Complex bouquet charged with aromas of blackberries, flowers, dark chocolate, and spices.

VINEYARD: Altano. From the Douro Valley in Portugal, this family-owned vineyard has over 130 years of history and five generations of experience in the art of extracting the best of the soil to create wonderful wines. Individual vineyards and sustainable practices, and the bold decision to produce Douro wines form the same vineyards that have historically produced great Ports, have positioned this hose as one of the finest winemakers in the country.
GRAPES: Touriga Nacional.
AGEING: Twelve months of ageing in American oak barrels prior to bottling.
PREPARATION: The grapes are carefully harvested and selected, and transported to the cellar in small, shallow boxes to preserve the integrity of each grape. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks of 9 and 15 tons of capacity, in a temperature-controlled process between 26° and 28°C. The wine is then aged until it reaches the desired state, and then it is bottled for consumption.
PAIRING: This red is perfect to accompany strong meals, such as grilled meat, and roasted beef.
RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 14-17°C

Wonderful cherry colour and high layer. Smells like chocolate. Fresh and fruity on the palate.
