Wine Review Report :

Last reviewed: 7 April, 2020

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.

However, this was disproved by DNA analyses carried out in 2003, but the parentage (parenthood) is unknown. The analyses revealed possible links to the Rabigato, Tinto Cão and Viosinho varieties. However, there is no connection to the variety Teinturier du CherTeinturier du...

The red grape variety comes from Portugal. Since 2002, the former name Touriga Francesca may no longer be used due to a lawsuit filed by the French wine lobby and a court order. Synonyms are Albino de Souza, Esgana Cão Tinto, Tinta Barca, Touriga Frances, Touriga Francesa and Tourigo Francês.
