Vinho Regional Algarve
“Beautifully constructed, this precise blend is focused and tightly wound. The tannic power does cut in and mask the fruit just now, but this is very young. While it probably needs a couple of years in the cellar, it looks on track to be superb.” [Mark Squires, Dec 2020]

The SENTIDOS Tato is a classic barrel–aged red wine of the highest quality, which reflects the grapes, terroir and climate of the Algarve. An intense but balanced wine.
Very dark colour. Beautiful scents of dark fruit, cherry juice, flowers, a touch of vanilla, cloves and smoke. On the palate, a wonderful balance of pithy density, fine–grained texture, soft creaminess, fruit extract and vivid freshness. Long finish with fine fruit.
SERVICE & PAIRING
Serve at 15 –17ºC. Decanting a few hours before drinking will open the full aromatic potential. Goes well with game, grilled meat and spicy foods.
VINIFICATION & AGEING
Completely handmade, unfiltered and unfined. Grapes come from carefully tended vines with strong yield reduction. Strict manual selection. Temperature–controlled fermentation in steel tanks with manual push downs, long extraction on skins. Aged for twelve months in French oak barrels, 70% used, 30% new.
