Quinta da Pellada
Dao - Portugal
The wine displays a sumptuous ruby colour and, for a vintage as balanced as 2012, offers floral aromas, dark berries, deep complexity and some body. The wood is well-integrated in the delicate mineral character of the wine. On the palate, it shows intense concentration, with firm tannins and great structure. Its minerality and superb acidity lend the wine freshness and balance, with a very long and vivacious finish – it’s the power of the Douro and the elegance of the Dão in perfect harmony! This is a wine which will undoubtedly age gracefully.
