Tons de Duorum is inspired by the bright colors that result from the reflection of the sun on the Douro River ("tons" means color nuance), creating different tones in the vineyards. This wine expresses the terroir of the fantastic Douro region, the result of a unique interaction between nature and human effort. Made from a blend of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz sourced from the Castelo Melhor and Costodio vineyards.
Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes are de-stemmed and gently crushed, followed by pre-fermentative maceration at low temperature between 10ºC - 12ºC for 3 days. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature below 25ºC.
Tons is ruby red in color with violet tones. The nose is dominated by aromas of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and prunes, blending beautifully with spicy secondary aromas from barrel aging. Well-balanced acidity, soft and ripe tannins, and a persistent finish result in an elegant wine.
Pair with red meats, barbecue, rich pasta, and hard cheeses.
