Castello DAlba Superior Red 2020
17 pts Vinho Grandes Escolhas - Very elegant and refined, a modern style that fully preserves the soul of the Douro’s native grape varieties. Aroma that harmoniously blends the great concentration of Douro reds in all their complexity. Berries, hints of rock rose, spices, exuberant violets and extremely fresh notes of basil and bergamot. The long maturation in barrels produced a wine with great aromatic elegance, where the scents of the Douro are not masked by excessive notes of oak. Very smooth and ripe tannins, fresh and aromatic, very elegant, with an unusual long finish.
