Quinta do Pinto - Grande Escolha Tinto
Verdant, Textured, Bold
The Grande Escolha Tinto from Quinta do Pinto in the historic Alenquer region of Lisbon represents the highest expression of the Quinta do Pinto estate and the embodiment of the Cardoso Pinto family’s meticulous stewardship of their land. This wine is only made in exceptional vintages and is intended to represent the full potential of what the Quinta do Pinto estate is capable of producing. An elegant and ageworthy blend, this expression combines indigenous Portuguese and French varietals to create a bold, highly-structured, and layered wine that develops over time and in the glass. The wine shines as an example of the awesome potential for what the ubiquitous Portuguese varietal Touriga Nacional can become when truly cared for and patiently crafted. Combined with complementary flavors of Petit Verdot and Merlot the wine exhibits layers of dark fruits, almost loamy earthiness, and a sustained acid and tannic structure that makes it truly a pleasure to enjoy.
