- Joe Fattorini’s Tasting Note: “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.” This Altano Douro red wine is made by the Symington family, entirely from grapes grown in their own vineyards, located along the length of the Douro Valley of Northern Portugal. It is a deep garnet in colour with fruity and floral aromas. A well-balanced wine, with a medium body, sweet tannins, and a smooth harmonious finish. Awards: Wine Spectator – 87/100, Wine Enthusiast – 86/100. Food Pairing Suggestions: Altano Red is a great partner with most food, from Italian cuisine to hearty meals such as roasts, casseroles or pork. It is perfect to drink amongst friends or during informal dinners.
