  • Vintage2011

Made from grapes grown in the Symington family's own Douro Valley vineyards (principally Cima Corgo and Douro Superior sub-regions). In all of these, environmental care is uppermost in the viticulturists' minds and accordingly, they use integrated vineyard management, a code of sustainable agricultural practice which favours natural measures to control pests and other threats to the vines.

Ideal for everyday, informal drinking at home with family or with friends, a great wine to relax and unwind with. Altano reflects its Douro origins perfectly: generous aromas of wildflowers (rockrose and lavender); full-bodied structure with fresh and assertive fruit (plums and black cherries); spicy, peppery tones, all seamlessly held together. A very food-friendly wine, Altano is a great companion for a wide selection of foods. Its full, assertive fruity style makes it particularly suited to accompany savoury Mediterranean dishes and barbecue grills.

Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca (the relative proportions of each vary from year to year).
