Conceito Vinho Tinto 2012
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
This big and rich wine is succulent and generous. Firm tannins show strongly through the ripe juicy black currant fruits. Full of the strong minerality typical of the Douro, this wine and its dry core still needs time to age. Drink from 2018.
The 2012 Estate Tinto is revisited this issue as part of the vertical of Conceito's Estate red. This lacks the depth of some vintages, but it is fresh, lifted, graceful and powerful. In other words, the same type of profile we saw with the 2011. Beautifully focused, vigorous and a bit astringent at the moment, this has closed up since I last saw it. Handling its oak well, it demonstrates how fine it will be one day. It would really help if you could give it a couple of years before opening it, though. This is a young puppy whose best days are well in front of it. It may not have the same depth as some years, but its fresh feel and serious backbone will serve it well.
