Roving Sommelier is passionate about premium quality regional wines, especially from the Iberian Peninsula. Altano is a blend of Tinta Roriz that provides the rich berry fruit and Touriga Franca that adds a lifted floral character, the majority of the blend was aged in American and French oak casks to soften up the muscular tannin of the Douro grapes so the wine is ready for immediate drinking. An exceptionally good, everyday wine. Best drunk in a convivial atmosphere.
