Vale de Pios Excomungado 2018 Douro Superior
Excommunicated from oak! So this blend of touriga nacional, touriga franca, tintas cao and roriz, and a sprinkle of syrah, is produced in steel tank. An expert extraction brings the fresh feel of an old school claret, although the notes of balsam, plum and dried pepper are essence of Douro. 'The less I do, the better I do,' in the words of winemaker Joaquim Almeida.
