More information about Fabelhaft Tinto 1,5 l Magnum in Holzkiste - Niepoort

The lively ruby red Niepoort Fabulous Douro Tinto shows purple reflections and shimmers with medium dense color in the glass. The lively, fragrant nose of this red wine cuvée of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and other grape varieties convinces with fresh, deep and very intense aromas of wild berries, juicy blackberries and some plum. Sweet spices and tart tea leaf blend harmoniously with the balsamic character of the Fabulous Douro Tinto.

On the palate, Fabelhaft Tinto reveals an elegant, voluminous and youthfully fresh flavor with a noticeable mineral profile. A nice, lively fruit acidity and soft tannins complete the balanced palate sensation.

With the Fabelhaft Tinto, the exterior of the red wine bottle is remarkable in addition to the contents. For this, Dirk Niepoort chose a story by Wilhelm Busch, currently that of the raven Hans Huckebein. Huckebein's life comes to a bad end, not least due to the consumption of alcohol, and has coined the term "unlucky raven" to this day. Fables like Huckebein's are the reason why Niepoort gave this wine series the name Fabelhaft - and they taste like it!
With the Fabelhaft Tinto, Dirk Niepoort has proven that red wines from Portugal full of character are possible at a fair price. Not only that, with his Wilhelm Busch label, he has also visually created a wine that is instantly recognizable.

Vinification of the Fabulous Tinto

The harvest starts at the beginning of September, and the grapes for the Fabelhaft Douro wines are harvested primarily with a focus on freshness, acidity and fruit. Especially overripe grapes should be avoided for the Fabelhaft Douro Tinto.

After the selection of the harvest in the cellar, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and fermented. After fermentation, the wine was aged in barriques of French oak (second racking) at 15% for 12 months.

Food recommendation for the Fabulous Wine Tinto from Niepoort

Enjoy this Portuguese red wine with pasta with spicy vegetable or meat sauces, pizza and dishes with beef or pork.
