Assobio Tinto 2013

Assobio Tinto 2013

Sku: P60404

Tinta Roriz 40%, Touriga Franca 40%, Touriga Nacional 20%

Big, juicy reds from the Douro are a great match for barbecue. Assobio's dark-ruby color promises intensity and delivers it! Round and full bodied with youthful fruit, black pepper, gentle oak, and beautifully integrated tannins. Made from a classic Douro blend of Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, and Touriga Nacional - all of which are hand harvested. This ripe and robust wine will match marinated meats and nearly anything off the grill. Barbecue meet your mate!
The Quinta das Murças estate dates back to 1770. The dramatically steep south-facing vineyard of schist soil makes for wines that reflect the heat and drama of their environment. Now under the ownership of Esporão, one of Portugal's most progressive companies, Quinta das Murças wines are a fresh take on a region that is steeped in tradition.

- Sadie Flateman, 67Wine Buyer
