Tasting Notes

Deep, crimson colour. This Altano red reveals scented floral aromas and focused, fresh fruit. Simultaneously full and silky on the palate, well-defined red fruit flavours come to the fore, enveloped in soft, ripe tannins and spicy notes. Generous, well-structured and elegant.

Ready for immediate consumption, although the wine has the potential to continue developing favourably for up to 4 years.

Symington Family Estates

Our family was amongst the pioneers of modern Douro wines. In the 1990s we began producing Douro DOC wines from the same vineyards and indigenous grape varieties that had always made great port. We released the first Altano red in 1999 and we haven't looked back. Today, the Altano range enjoys global distribution and the wines have received widespread recognition for their quality and distinctiveness.

The Altano reds are produced solely with grapes from our vineyards. The grapes for the Altano whites come from specific vineyards privately owned by members of our family and selected farmers with vineyards in higher altitude areas, many who have supplied us for decades.

Each year our winemakers are challenged to produce wines that best reflect our unparalleled collection of vineyards, selecting the most suitable grapes depending on the year’s specific conditions and characteristics. In a region of 21,400 farmers, our 26 Quintas are an exceptional guarantee of quality, allowing our viticulture and winemaking teams a level of control and choice that is unique in the region.
