2018 Macanita Tinto Douro Portugal
Deep violet. On the nose, redolent of black and blue fruit tinged with violets and wet stone. On the palate, rich but balanced, with fresh acidity coupling the dark blueberry and plum fruit. Finishes long and spicy, with a big dose of flowers and minerals.
Two winemakers, a brother and sister in the Douro, have produced a ripe, structured wine. Firm tannins and strongly textured blackberry fruits reflect the serious schist soil. Drink this rich wine from 2022.
