The only Touriga Nacional known to be planted in Italy, on marl-sandy soils, surreptitiously described as "international grapes", and to the tune of just 2,000 bottles.
Altavia's audacious experiment has however fallen foul of the authorities, and they've been told they must either grub up their Touriga Nacional and cease any production of this wine, or face a whopping great fine. Therefore this 2007 vintage is the final bottling, and we've picked up the remnants. Aside from being a piece of wine history, it's a superb wine. Dark, ripe blackberries, whiffs of smoke from a crackling winter fire and violets, black pepper, and thanks to its age so very smooth.
