“T” grape entries

Tinto Cão

One of the greatest of the varietals grown in the Duoro valley in northern Portugal for use in the delicious fortified wines of Oporto. Tinta Cão has a particularly tough skin, which sometimes can hamper ripening if the vine is grown in very warm areas or has too high a yield. When grown at higher elevations Tinta Cão can have an intensely floral and spicy aroma with hints of black cherries and Christmas spices that can add a certain character to the final port blend.
