2017 Quinta Dos Roques Tinto Reserva Dao
Quinta dos Roques Reserva Tinto is a multi-varietal red wine blend from one of the leading, small estates of the Dao wine-growing region. It is a typical field blend of Dao red grapes, aged in 2nd year French oak 225L barrels for 15 months and is allowed to mature sometime in bottle prior to release. Brilliant deep colour, with an intense fruit bouquet of blackcurrants and pine leaves, with vanilla and chocolate notes given by the oak. On the palate it is very generous with the astringence characteristic of its youth. This has remarkable ageing potential due to its great balance between alcohol, acidity, tannins and body.
