Alianca Dao Red
This product is currently sold out.
The Alianca Dao is a brilliant example of what a full-flavoured, spicy red from Portugal should be. It has the trademark ripe bramble fruits that makes it an excellent winter warmer. An open fruity nose, with ripe cherry and plum characters. Similarly ripe and full-flavoured on the palate with blackberry and plum notes. Soft tannins and spice on the finish. Goes well with grilled beef or lamb or robust stew. For a veggie alternative try with spinach and lentil casserole.
Grapes: Touriga Nacional 40%, Tinta Roriz 30%, Jaen 30%
