The color is red, dense, clean and brilliant, with garnet reflexes. A very scented and exuberant nose with a predominance of wild berry, blueberry, redcurrant, raspberry and notes that remind us of tangerine peel and bergamot blossom. In the mouth it is fresh and vibrant with a good tannic structure. Echoes of the aromas of wild berry as well as plums and a spicy finish. Flavorful and elegant.
Food Pairing: Duas Quintas Red is a wonderful aperitif as it harmonises well with traditional Portuguese cold charcuterie such as paio and presunto, or hot roasted alheiras. It pairs beautifully with poultry dishes that are not too strong but have some fat, such as oven-roasted chicken or turkey. This red is also good with gratins, cod with cream, vegetarian lasagne or cannelloni. A great wine with grilled meat and ideal with cured ewe's milk cheese. The ideal serving temperature is 60° to 64°F.
Wine SpectatorThis juicy, full-bodied red features a licorice-tinged core of cherry tart and red currant flavors, with details of violet and mineral. Tangy elements linger into the moderately tannic finish. Drink now through 2025.
Wine EnthusiastAttractive soft fruit and touches of tannins give this wine an instant appeal. The black-currant freshness is balanced by a core of dryness and lifted by acidity. This wine is ready to drink.
