Varietal Definition
Tinto Cao:
Portuguese red grape variety which is used for port wine. Grows in small bunches, the grapes are medium sized with a thick skin. The difference with the other port grapes is that it produces wines with a lower alcohol concentration. Just like the Touriga Nacional it is less productive with regard to total crop size turnover. It is especially used in the port blends for its flowery aroma and fruity taste. Smallest of all port varieties, but growing in popularity.
