Blend: 30% Tinta Barroca + 30% Touriga Franca + 25% Tinta Roriz
From: Portugal, Douro DOC
By: Casa Ferreirinha
A medium bodied red from the Douro region of Portugal. Papa Figos Douro Tinto is conjured from a blend of local grapes: Tinto Barroca, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz, some grown on the historic Casa Ferreirinha estate, and others carefully selected from other local growers owning north facing vineyards.
Casa Ferreirinha has been a wine growing estate since 1751, and was bought by the Portuguese Sogrape company in 1987. Today, wines are made by talented winemaker Luis Sottomayor. The wine is named for the Papa Figo, a rare, pretty bird that migrates through the Douro region. The 2014 vintage won a silver at the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2016 and at the International Wine and Spirit Competition.
