Douro Tinto Reserva, Macanita, Douro 2019/20
Maçanita Vinhos, Peso da Régua, Douro
|The Maçanita Vinhos project was created by characterful siblings Joana and António Maçanita in the Douro back in 2011. Having worked together in over 14 wineries around the country, they wanted the new project to reflect their experiences and aspirations; lots of laughter, lots of arguments and an ethos of questioning the existing way of doing things. Over the intervening years, Maçanita Vinhos have managed to encompass the diversity of the terroir of the Douro Valley in its purest and most faithful form. The wines of Maçanita express each facet of this spectacular landscape; the “high-altitude Douro”, the “hot schist Douro”, the “cold granite Douro” all through indigenous grape varieties from old vines and a non-interventionist approach.
Dark violet color with a concentrated aroma of red fruits. Round tannins. Aftertaste is intense and persistent.
