Bastardo Tinto, Douro 2017, Conceito
16 December 2019
An attractive red, made from 5 hectares of the early ripening Bastardo vine, planted 50 years ago in the Douro uplands by the grandfather of Conceito’s owner, Rita Marques. Foot trodden in granite lagares and aged for 10 months in stainless steel vats, this comparatively light wine for the Douro at 13% of alcohol has spicy aromas and a round, glycerine mouth, making it a perfect accompaniment for Asian foods.
The 2017 is already drinking well. ???????? Bastardo Tinto, Douro 2017, Conceito
