Wine Advocate 88
“The 2020 Branco Tons is an unoaked blend of 30% Viosinho, 25% Rabigato, 20% Verdelho and 20% Arinto, plus a dollop of Moscatel Galego Branco for the rest (giving the wine some personality). It comes in very dry and at 12.6% alcohol. In its youth (bottled about seven weeks before it was tasted), this is super and another overachiever from a brand that has become a very good and consistent value. It's hard to lean up too far on the score here, given that I don't think it will age or develop much, but right now it certainly seems like a super deal in its youth. It is fresh, exuberant and alive. It has a reasonable degree of solidity in the mid-palate as well. It will be a perfect porch-sipper this summer. Drink it very young for best results, no matter how long it theoretically lasts.”
DuorumView all from Duorum
The name Duorum, which is Latin for "from two," captures the spirit of this famed Portuguese winery, which was founded in 2007 by João Portugal Ramos and José Soares Franco, two of Portugal's most renowned oenologists. Ramos, widely considered the "King of the Alentejo," began his career as a groundbreaking wine consultant in the 1980s, and today runs successful projects in the Alentejo, Vinho Verde, Beiras, and Douro. Franco, on the other hand, spent 27 years as wine director for one of Portugal's most renowned wines: the Douro's Barca Velha. Longtime friends and admirers of each other's work, they sought to pool their combined 60 years of winemaking experience and create a wine together. Today, Duorum is widely recognized as a gold standard for Portuguese wines.
