Description

Antonio Maçanita, winemaker at Fitapreta, likes to keep things traditional but with an irreverent wink, and in the process creates wines that are both classic and completely new. A Touriga Vai Nua, or “The Touriga Goes Naked,” is one playful example of Antonio’s skill: he takes the “typical” warmth and ripeness of Alentejo fruit and creates a completely novel expression out of Portugal’s king of grapes, Touriga Naçional. Like all the wines from Fita Preta, this wine showcases the Alentejo terroir – marked by a plush, slate-accented palate -- but by doing a partial carbonic maceration and a quick 3 month elevage in stainless steel, creates an expression of Touriga that is light on its feet and versatile. Try it with a slight chill, even. This is “Touriga as only winemakers have tasted it,” before it sees any blending or oak treatment, and a pleasure to drink.
