Tasting Notes

A field blend of red and white grapes from the Douro Valley. This wine is light on it's feet with bright red fruit notes and lithe minerality, reminiscent of Pinot Noir. Best enjoyed lightly chilled. Tiago Sampaio is the face behind Folias De Baco combining wine tradition of the Douro, the teachings and the passion transmitted by his grandfather and scientific knowledge acquired during academic training abroad.
