Tinta Roriz is one of the grapes that is very much at home on the granite soils of the Dão. Here winemaker Hugo Chavez produces a structured, densely tannic wine, swathed with loads of red fruit, with acidity to balance. This 100% Tinta Roriz is a powerful wine, needing more aging. Drink from 2016.
