Caves Alianca Foral Tinto Douro
87 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Deep ruby colour. Evident red fruit notes in a balanced combination with hints of spices. Rico, pleasant, fresh and fruity. Concentrated with a slight touch of sweetness aftertaste makes this wine unique and consensual in terms of pleasantness.
"While the wine is soft and almost ready to drink, it does also have the Douro mineral texture and dry tannins. The Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) dominates, giving the wine its round and rich character. Drink now or wait until 2016 for the tannins to soften further." —R.V.
