Fita Preta Vinhos "A Touriga Vai Nua" Tinto '16

Touriga Nacional is one of the principal red wine grapes of Portugal. It can be found planted widely in the Douro, but also in regions such as Dão, Bairrada, and even Alentejo.

It is a grape that provides fruit, structure and can provide for long-lived wines. I’ve had the opportunity to try many 100% varietal Touriga Nacional’s. To be frank, most of them are oaked to high heaven and taste like they could come from anywhere.

Luckily, we have this beautiful expression of Touriga Nacional from Antonio Maçanita of Fita Preta to show us an example without all that “makeup.” Grown in the warm Alentejo region, this wine undergoes partial carbonic maceration, and only 3 months of aging in stainless steel tank, all in an effort to preserve the freshness of the grape.

Wonderfully aromatic, with notes of blackberry, plum, mineral and spice. This has richness, a silky medium weight mouth chock full of fruit and white pepper spice. A wine you can just have a glass of after a long day, or perfect for grilled steaks.
