Description and Reviews:
The Quinta das Carvalhas Reserva Red Wine from 2019 presents a beautiful and intense ruby colour, with powerful varietal (60% Touriga Nacional, 20% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz.) aromas of mature red fruit successfully integrated with vanilla nuances, from ageing in oak. A very full bodied wine, harmonious and round with flavours of black fruit. A very long and velvety finish crowned by an excellent acidity.
Enjoy this complex and powerful Douro Reserva with game dishes, steak or pastas. Store bottles on their sides in a cool place away from direct light. Serve at 16°C.
Quinta das Carvalhas is one of the most emblematic and spectacular properties in the Douro valley. Written references regarding this magnificent vineyard can be traced back to 1759. Enjoying a prominent position on the left bank of the Douro river, in Pinhão, the estate covers the entire hillside facing the Douro river and occupies part of the slopes of the right bank of the tributary Torto river. Carvalhas’ old vines, are a post-phylloxera plantation, which have reached the respectful age of a century old and represent one of the richest selection of ancient indigenous Douro varieties.
