Altano Douro 2013, Douro/Porto, Portugal

Country: Portugal

Colour / Style: Red

Featured in: Episode 9

As chosen by: Joe Fattorini

We all need something hearty in our lives. And this fits the bill with bold, richly-fruity aromas and a spicy palate. But don’t expect some crass bruiser of a wine, this has the charm of the rustic Portuguese farmer, perfect with sausage casserole, a slow-cooked lamb shank or rich tomato sauce. One of the best value wines of the series.
