Wine Review Report :

Last reviewed: 25 August, 2016

The Portuguese wine-growing region is named after the 900-kilometre-long river of the same name, on whose often very steep slopes with extreme inclination the vineyards are located. The river has its source in the Spanish province of Soria(Castilla y León), flows through northern Spain as the "Duero" and then through northern Portugal as the "Douro" until it finally flows into the Atlantic Ocean at the city of Porto. The river forms the Portuguese-Spanish border for more than 100 kilometres, after which the port wine region extends into Portugal for the same length of time.

Despite apparently indicative synonyms or morphological similarities, it should not be confused with the Carrega Tinto, Grossa and Marufo (all with the synonym Tinta Grossa) or Touriga Franca varieties. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it comes from a presumably natural cross between Marufo and Touriga Nacional. However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see under...
