Pair
The Douro and the Dão both claim Touriga Nacional as their own. And the grape excels in both regions, in very different ways. In the Douro, it's round and juicy, but in the Dão, high altitude, cooler temperatures, and granite soils yield reds that are graceful, feminine, and beautifully scented. At Quinta da Falorca, the vineyards are planted to 30 different clones of Touriga Nacional. The average vine age is 80 years. The name,T-Nac, is too cute by half. But the wine? Deep crimson color, with a voluptuous nose and deep red cherry fruit. Rose petals. Fresh tobacco. Licorice. Plum jam. Mint. Cinnamon. Beautifully mature, silky tannins. Mmmm.
