Favonius Red 2022

14,50 €

Made exclusively from the Touriga Nacional grape variety. In the Lisboa region this variety becomes less floral and more fresh fruit. The region also makes it harder to mature red wines, both in colour and in tannin content. For this very reason, they opted to shorten the maceration, gaining less tannins and keeping the fresh fruit, making an easy drink type of wine, without loosing the variety and regional characteristics.
