Grape Varieties: Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz.
The Legitimo is a typical blend of Douro red grape varieties, but made in an old-fashioned way and style. It has been made with minimal intervention and in a lighter style than may be expected for modern Douro. The grapes are at a higher altitude at Conceito, and harvested early to ensure acidity. Natural fermentation of whole bunches, in stainless steel, has been used for a light extraction, and fruit focus.
Deep in colour, juicy-fruited, a bit of grippy tannin, and great freshness. All this makes for a great food wine. Recognisable as Douro, but light!
