2011 Douro Red, Castelinho Reserva
Douro / Portugal
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
It goes well with lamb and roasted red meat dishes.
Castelinho Reserva is a strong character wine glossy, full garnet colour, made from Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca varieties. You can taste chocolate truffles with biscuit notes and hints of vanilla, delicate new oak aromas. It’s youthful and still primary but already fully expressive nose. Rich and concentrated, the palate is well structured, but smooth and dense with intense ripe plumy and cherries.
