The Douro Demarcated wine region is a breathtakingly beautiful region located in the North East of Portugal. The Douro River twists and turns along the Valley that claims the same name and has been witness to centuries of backbreaking work that has transformed a wilderness into a world class wine making region. Over twenty five thousand farmers still take care and manage the 45.000 hectares of planted vineyards.
Tasting Notes: A blend of Touriga National, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz sourced from the higher altitude Quinta do Arnozelo in the Douro Superior. The nose is very fragrant with ripe blackberry fruit, vanilla, honeysuckle and dark chocolate aromas.
Aged in new 225 liter French and Hungarian oak barrels, this elegant, fresh, clean red is medium bodied, well balanced and quite charming with very good length.
