Carvalhas Tinta Francisca
Tinta Francisca is a widely present grape variety among the Douro’s oldest vines. After conducting a profound study, we have developed a recovery program in order to produce a high quality wine from this noble variety that was almost in extinction. Known for its low level of yield, Tinta Francisca reveals a long cycle with late maturation, a small bundle which in some ways has a resemblance to Pinot Noir, its medium to high vegetative vigor, and having distinguished itself in a landscape for its intensley shiny green leaves. We were attracted to produce from this variety a new style of Douro Red, in which we present a very aromatic wine, with a medium-bodied structure and extremely elegant, yet with great intensity. We found, in this way, a new Douro through a very old grape.Download ficha técnica
