Once again, in 2018 the climate in the Douro was unstable. Ripening occurred later than usual but, according to Quinta dos Murças winemaker José Luís Moreira da Silva, the grapes’ good acidity helped Assobio Red 2018 remain faithful to its profile, which is a fresh, aromatic and elegant wine.”

Crafted from traditional Douro grape varieties – Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Franca – Assobio Red is vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. A small portion of the batch ages in used French oak barrels.
