Alves de Sousa Caldas Tinto 2015, Portugal
A velvet-smooth Douro red with big character.
Dry red wine, 75cl. Medium bodied Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz blend from Douro, Portugal. 14.0% ABV.
91pts, Falstaff Magazine; Best Buy, Portuguese Wine Magazine. Ruby red and fragrant with aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, pepper and violets. The Caldas Tinto is well-balanced and barrel-ageing has softened its tannins, giving the palate a juicy and characterful flavour with a ripe finish.
You'll like this if you like... Rioja Spanish wines, full-bodied jammy red wines or dark chocolate.
Pairs beautifully with: Costoletas de vitela (veal chops), goat or rabbit stews, and portobello mushrooms stuffed with melted cheese.
Cheese pairing: Castelo Branco sheep's milk cheese.
