Pintas Character Tinto, Douro DOC 2016, Wine & Soul
23 December 2019
Sandra Tavares da Silva and Jorge Serodio Borges, owners and winemakers at Wine & Soul, have made field blends one of the hallmarks of their outstanding wines. Pintas Character Tinto is a field blend made from old vines and more than 30 different grape varieties. The grapes are foot trodden in stone lagares and the wine aged for 18 months in French oak. With notes of raspberry, black cherry and plums, this rich and powerful red, full of freshness and ripe fruit, offers a lingering velvety finish, with beautifully integrated tannins.
The 2016, already very enjoyable drinking, will reward you with a few additional years in the bottle.
