In the center of Portugal, slightly more in the North, the small wine region of Dao can be found. With incredibly intense wines, they offer great value and quality.
The climate is temperate, where the winters are cold and rainy and the summers dry and warm. Soils are poor and granitic with poor retention of water, and the grapes varieties, combine to give different wines with more tannins, more acidity and freshness.
In the case of red wines, we have the Touriga Nacional grape variety that gives wines of intense red colour.
It has a high potential for aging, the aromas are intense, of high complexity, very mature black fruits and forest fruits. In the mouth it is full-bodied, persistent, robust, with an unmistakable velvety tannin structure, very fruityand elegant.
Just the kind of terroir we very much enjoy.
