It is aptly named: Tinta Barroca means “the dark baroque”. In fact, this variety yields very dark wines with good body and opulent aromas. They smell of plum, cherry and blackberry, have a lot of alcohol and low acidity. The Tinta Barroca has its home in the northern Portuguese Douro Valley. Traditionally, it has gone into port wine, but it is now also an element of the booming red wines from this area. Alone, it turns out somewhat rustically. Therefore, it is wedded with other quality varieties from the Duoro, like Touriga Nacional or Tinta Roriz.
