Altano is a red wine from the Douro by producer Symington with the combination of Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca! A red for every day…
The Symington family was among the pioneers of modern Douro wines. In the 90’s they started producing Douro DOC wines from the same native vineyards and grape varieties that have always produced excellent Port wine. They launch the first red Altano in 1999 and don’t look back. Today, the Altano range has global distribution and the wines have been recognized for their quality and distinction.
Winemakers Charles Symington and Pedro Correia bet here on a smooth vinification in order to extract color and aroma and limit the extraction of tannins, producing an aromatic, very fruity and appealing wine
Ideal for consumption on a daily basis, in informal moments, with family or among friends. Altano clearly highlights its origins, perfectly reflecting the Douro style: generous aromatic range of wild flora (rosemary, rock rose), powerful structure with fresh and assertive fruit (black plum, cherry), mineral, spicy notes, all very well combined in a smooth and harmonious finish.
