Casa Ferreirinha Papa Figos Tinto Douro

Casa Ferreirinha Papa Figos Tinto Douro

€20.95
 
This wine is deep ruby red in color with violet nuances. It has a very intense aroma, dominated by floral notes of basil and rock rose, light menthol tones, and notes of red fruits and apricot. On the palate, it has a good body, well-integrated acidity, smooth tannins, and red fruit notes. Its finish is elegant and balanced.

Description

Founded in 1952, with the production of the first-ever vintage of Barca Velha, Casa Ferreirinha pioneered the quality revolution in the Douro still wines and was the first producer in the region dedicated entirely to producing wine, rather than port. Named after the legendary Porto matriarch Dona Antónia Ferreira, Casa Ferreirinha pays homage to the memory of this visionary woman. Today, the winemaking is headed up by Luís Sottomayor, who restrains the Douro’s natural exuberance to produce wines that have a vibrant freshness allied to a lovely texture and depth. This wine is deep ruby red in color with violet nuances. It has a very intense aroma, dominated by floral notes of basil and rock rose, light menthol tones, and notes of red fruits and apricot. On the palate, it has a good body, well-integrated acidity, smooth tannins, and red fruit notes. Its finish is elegant and balanced.

Alex's Recommendation

I love how well this producer showcases the complexity of red Douro wines. It's not just Port as you'll discover from this bottle.
