The extended skin contact gives it an intense yellow colour. Aromas of rose petals, lychees and tangerine. Medium-bodied palate with a chewy grapefruit core. Some tannin tension and medium acidity, leading to a prolonged finish.


About the producer: Folias de Baco, which translates to 'the madness of Bacchus,' is the result of Tiago Sampaio's lifelong journey in agriculture and vine growing. He was born and raised in Porto, but as a child he often visited the vineyards of his grandparents on the Plateau of Alijó, Douro. Although they sold most of the grapes to the local cooperative at the time, they also made a red/white co-ferment every year for the family to drink, a wine that has since become the inspiration for his own 'Renegado.'
