Quinta Dos Aciprestes | Grande Reserva | Sousao | Red | 2015 | Doc Douro - Vivino Rating 4.6
Intro: A powerful red that assembles all the characteristics of this famed varietal allied to the Quinta dos Aciprestes terroir. This variety has been present in the region for many years but very rarely used as a single varietal wine.
Region: Douro (D.O.C)
Winery: Real Companhia Velha
Aging: 18 months in French Oak (70% old Oak, 30% new Oak)
Tasting Notes: This wine reveals the essence of Sousão through a very deep and profound tint colour, typical of this famed variety. Hints of green combine with fine fruit aromas and classic Sousão tertiary notes of spice and coffee grain, offering immense aromatic complexity. Flavourful, yet smooth on the palate, with vivid yet round tannins and finally characterised but a very lively acidity, which again is typical in Sousão.
ABV: 13.5% Serving Temp: 16°C Decant: 1hr Pairing: Grouse, Pork, Red Meat, Lamprey
