Alianca Dao Reserva

This is a blend of local varietals from the Dao region of central Portugal, the next  river valley down from the Duoro which is the Port river. The grapes used are: Tinta Roriz (best known as Tempranillo), Jaen (best known as Mencia) and Touriga Nacional; not names that roll easily off the tongue – that said the wine will! This is a deliciously rich wine with lots of wild red fruits, herb and spice flavours on the nose. The fruit on the nose is slightly darker with wild berries and plum being prominent along with a hint of cocoa followed with soft and elegant tannins to finish that leave the tastebuds wanting more.
